Canticle 9 - The First Song of Isaiah, Ecce, Deus

Good morning! It is Wednesday, April First.

Canticles are songs or poems based on portions of scripture. They are used in the daily office and in the Eucharist. Each is numbered, named, and has a Latin name.

Today, we will read canticle nine, the first song of Isaiah, Ecce, Deus, page eighty-six of the Book of Common Prayer. 

Note: My Latin pronunciation of "Ecce, Deus" is not correct. It should sound like "ECH-ay, De-oo s." I was using Southern Latin.
