I will alway give thanks unto the Lord *
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord *
the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
O praise the Lord with me *
and let us magnify his Name together.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me *
yea, he delivered me out of all my fear.
They had an eye unto him, and were lightened *
and their faces were not ashamed.
Lo, the poor crieth, and the Lord heareth him *
yea, and saveth him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord tarrieth round about them that fear him *
and delivereth them.
O taste, and see, how gracious the Lord is *
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
O fear the Lord, ye that are his saints *
for they that fear him lack nothing.
The lions do lack, and suffer hunger *
but they who seek the Lord shall want no manner of thing that is good.
Come, ye children, and hearken unto me *
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
What man is he that lusteth to live *
and would fain see good days?
Keep thy tongue from evil *
and thy lips, that they speak no guile.
Eschew evil, and do good *
seek peace, and ensue it.
The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous *
and his ears are open unto their prayers.
The countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil *
to root out the remembrance of them from the earth.
The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth them *
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart *
and will save such as be of an humble spirit.
Great are the troubles of the righteous *
but the Lord delivereth him out of all.
He keepeth all his bones *
so that not one of them is broken.
But misfortune shall slay the ungodly *
and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
The Lord delivereth the souls of his servants *
and all they that put their trust in him shall not be destitute.
