Sirach 47:8-10 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
8 In all that he did he gave thanks
to the Holy One, the Most High, with ascriptions of glory;
he sang praise with all his heart,
and he loved his Maker.
9 He placed singers before the altar,
to make sweet melody with their voices.
10 He gave beauty to the feasts,
and arranged their times throughout the year,
while they praised God’s holy name,
and the sanctuary resounded from early morning.
