Chapter 19: On the Manner of Saying the Divine Office

We believe that the divine presence is everywhere
and that “the eyes of the Lord
 
are looking on the good and the evil in every place” (Prov. 15:3).
But we should believe this especially without any doubt
when we are assisting at the Work of God.
 
To that end let us be mindful always of the Prophet’s words,
 
“Serve the Lord in fear” (Ps. 2:11)
 
and again “Sing praises wisely” (Ps. 46[47]:8)
 
and “In the sight of the Angels I will sing praise to You” (Ps. 137[138]:1).
Let us therefore consider how we ought to conduct ourselves
 
in sight of the Godhead and of His Angels,
 
and let us take part in the psalmody in such a way
 
that our mind may be in harmony with our voice.
