Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous *
for it becometh well the just to be thankful.
Praise the Lord with harp *
sing praises unto him with the lute, and instrument of ten strings.
Sing unto the Lord a new song *
sing praises lustily unto him with a good courage.
For the word of the Lord is true *
and all his works are faithful.
He loveth righteousness and judgement *
the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made *
and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth.
He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap *
and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
Let all the earth fear the Lord *
stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world.
For he spake, and it was done *
he commanded, and it stood fast.
The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought *
and maketh the devices of the people to be of none effect, and casteth out the counsels of princes.
The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever *
and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
Blessed are the people, whose God is the Lord Jehovah *
and blessed are the folk, that he hath chosen to him to be his inheritance.
The Lord looked down from heaven, and beheld all the children of men *
from the habitation of his dwelling he considereth all them that dwell on the earth.
He fashioneth all the hearts of them *
and understandeth all their works.
There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of an host *
neither is any mighty man delivered by much strength.
A horse is counted but a vain thing to save a man *
neither shall he deliver any man by his great strength.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him *
and upon them that put their trust in his mercy;
To deliver their soul from death *
and to feed them in the time of dearth.
Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord *
for he is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in him *
because we have hoped in his holy Name.
Let thy merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us *
like as we do put our trust in thee.
