Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous; *
it is fitting for the just to be thankful.
Praise the Lord with the harp; *
sing praises unto him with the ten-stringed lute.
Sing unto him a new song; *
make skillful melody and cry aloud with joy.
For the word of the Lord is true, *
and all his works are faithful.
He loves righteousness and true judgment; *
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 gathers the waters of the sea together, as in a heap, *
and lays up the deep, as in a treasure house.
Let all the earth fear the Lord; *
stand in awe of him, all you that dwell in the world.
To deliver their soul from death, *
and to feed them in the time of famine.
Our soul has patiently waited for the Lord, *
for he is our help and our shield.
Our heart shall rejoice in him, *
because we have hoped in his holy Name.
Let your merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us, *
as we have put our trust in you.
