Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:

Day after day I will bless you, God, for you are the creator of all that is.

Psalm 149

Sing to God a song,
a hymn of praise newly written.

Let Israel rejoice in its maker;
let all of Zion exult in the Holy One.
Let them praise God's name with dancing,
making music with timbrel and harp.

God takes delight in the faithful
and abundantly blesses the poor.
They will rejoice in glory.
In peace, they will rest secure.

God's praises will be ever on their lips,
for justice will prevail.

God will call all people to give an account.
Oppressors will be bound;
all evildoers will be punished.
The just shall rejoice as God decreed.

Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
