One: Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked but  instead delight in wisdom of the Lord.
Many: In God we will delight!
One: They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield fruit in  its season, and their leaves do not wither.
Many: In God we will delight!
One: God will watch over them and they will prosper.
Many: In God we will delight!
One: Come, you happy people, you who delight in the Lord, let us worship the Lord with gladness.
Many: In God we will delight!

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
