Clap your hands, all you nations;
Shout to God with cries of joy.
How awesome is the Lord Most High,
The great King over all the earth!
OPENING OUR HANDS
Hear my cry for mercy, as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.

I lift up my hands to your commands which I love,
And I meditate on your decrees.

Into your hands I commit my spirit;
Redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth.
