No man changes thy holy place, O my God, And there is no one who will change it and set it in another place, 2 For none has authority over it; 1 Or ‘Because there is no authority over it’. For thou didst purpose thy sanctuary before thou madest places: 3 What 2 Or ‘He who’. is older will not be changed by those that are younger than it. 3 Or ‘he’. Thou has given thy heart, O Lord, to thy faithful ones: 4 Thou wilt never be ineffectual, Nor wilt thou be fruitless; 5 For one hour of thy faithfulness 4 Or ‘faith in thee’. Is better than all days and years. 6 For who will put on thy grace and be rejected? 7 Because thy seal is 〈kn〉own, And thy creatures are known to it, 8 And 〈the〉 hosts 〈h〉old it, And the elect archangels are clothed in it. 9 Thou hast given us communion with thee: 5 Or ‘thy fellowship’. It was not that thou wast in need of us, but that we were in need of thee. 10 Sprinkle upon us thy dews, And open thy rich springs which flow with milk and honey for us. 11 For there is no regret with thee, That thou shouldest feel regret for anything that thou hast promised; 12 And the end was manifest to thee. 13 For what thou hast given thou hast given freely, So that thou shouldest not take them back henceforth; 6 Text ‘So that thou shouldest not henceforth pull and take them’. For everything was manifest to thee, as God, 14 And was prepared from the beginning before thee; And thou, O God, hast made all. 15 Hallelujah.
