Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    nor will you let your faithful one see decay.

 You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.


                                           Psalm 16:9-11

Almighty and eternal God,

who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, 
now and for ever.
