Who shall give out of Sion the salvation of Is-ra-el? * When God hath turned back the captivity of_His i peo-ple, * Jacob shall rejoice and Is- t ra-el shall be glad",

Glory be 'to the Fath-er, and i to the" Son, * and t to the Ho-ly Ghost. ~

As it was in the beginning, both now and i ev-er, * and unto the ages of t a-ges. A-men.

Psalm 53:

Then the 1st Cantor alone chants the first half of the first verse of the 8th Psalm, using the same Tone, including the intonation notes (within the first set of brackets therein):

o God, in Thy Name T save me, *

Then, only the 1st Cantor's side ei. the Quire completes the verse:

and in Thy strength t do Thou judge me.

And then, only the 2nd Cantor's side ei: the Quire chants the entire next verse (omitting the intonation notes), the two sides alternating the verses thereafter:

o God, hearken un-to i my prayer; * give ear unto the 1 words of my mouth. For strangers are risen up against me, t and mighty men have sought af-ter i my soul, * and have not set t God be-fore them-selves,

For be-hold, God i help-eth me, * and the Lord is the Pro- t tee-tor Of my soul. He will bring evils up-on mine i en-em-Ies. lie Utterly de-stroy t them by Thy Truth.

Willingly shall I sac-rif-ice i un-to Thee; * I will confess Thy Name, 0 t Lord, for it is good.

For out of every affliction hast Thou de- i liv-er'd me, * and mine eye hath looked down up- t on mine en-em-ies.

Glory be to the Fath-er, and T to the .. Son, * and t to the Ho-ly Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, both now and i ev-er, * and unto the ages of t a-ges. A-men.
