On Entering God’s House

By your great mercy
I will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
with reverence for you.
Lord, lead me in your righteousness.
Because of those who slander me,
make your way straight before me,
that with a clear mind
I may praise you forever;
one divine power
worshiped in three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
