Give thanks to the Sox, for they are great…

In the Fourth
Tone

Antiphon:  Give thanks unto
the Sox, for they are great*
their right hands and mighty arms have given us the victory.

Sorely have they afflicted me from my youth, let Boston now
say*
sorely have they afflicted me from my
youth.

Too long have we borne the jeers
of Gotham*
too long the Yankees have humbled us to the dust.

Antiphon

And when I looked toSt. Louis, my heart cleaved to my
mouth*
but in the morning, they were not to be
seen
by midnight the Cardinals had been clean swept away.

Form a procession from the gates of Fenway into the midst
of the city*
let all the faithful of Beantown clap their
hands in joy

Antiphon

How beautiful are the feet of them*
that hit homers with players on
base.
There goes David mighty batter before the crowd*
there go Johnny and Trent in the midst of
them.

Antiphon

The right hand of Curt has triumphed! *

The right hand
of Pedro has been victorious!

As for me and my house, we shall sleep in
rest and quietness*
for the Pennant Race and World Series are over
at last.

Antiphon: Give thanks unto
the Sox, for they are great *
Their right hands and mighty arms have given us the victory.
