¶ When singing a psalm, the word 'blessed' is to be pronounced as two syllables: 'bless - ed'. Where spelled 'blest', the word is pronounced as one syllable.

¶ A double forward slash // marks the mid-point in each psalm verse where, traditionally, a pause is observed.

¶ A single forward slash / marks a bar-line of the chant. A dot · indicates the mid point of the bar, and the chord changes after the dot. Chord changes in words of more than one syllable are indicated by a dash.

¶ For those traditions which omit the word 'Alleluia' during penitential seasons, we have provided an alternative: 'Praise the Lord'.

¶ A verse printed in bold should be sung in unison.

¶ Each psalm or group of psalms may end with

1 The Lord / is my / shepherd: //
therefore / can I / lack / nothing.

2 He shall feed me in a / green / pasture: //
and lead me forth be/side the / waters of / comfort.

3 He shall con/vert my / soul: //
and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness / for his / Name's / sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will / fear no / evil: //
for thou art with me, thy / rod and thy / staff / comfort me.

5 Thou shalt prepare a table before me, against / them that / trouble me: //
thou hast anointed my head with oil / and my / cup shall be / full.

6 But thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me, all the / days of my / life: //
and I will dwell in the / house of the / Lord for / ever.

2 He makes me lie down / in green / pastures //
and / leads me · be/side still / waters.

3 He shall re/fresh my / soul //
and guide me in the paths of righteousness / for his / name's / sake.

4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will / fear no / evil; //
for you are with me; your / rod and your / staff, they / comfort me.

5 You spread a table before me in the presence of / those who / trouble me; //
you have anointed my head with oil / and my cup / shall be / full.

6 Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me all the / days of my / life, //
and I will dwell in the / house of the / Lord for / ever.

Glory be to the Father and / to the / Son //

as it was in the beginning, is now, and / ever / shall be //
world without / end. / A /men.

Glory to the Father and / to the / Son //
