I will constantly speak his praises.
let all who are helpless take heart.
let us exalt his name together.
He freed me from all my fears.
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
he saved me from all my troubles.
he surrounds and defends all who fear him.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
for those who fear him will have all they need.
but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.
and I will teach you to fear the Lord.
that is long and prosperous?
and your lips from telling lies!
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
his ears are open to their cries for help.
he will erase their memory from the earth.
He rescues them from all their troubles.
he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.
not one of them is broken!
and those who hate the righteous will be punished.
No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
