I will bless the Lord at all
times; • his praise shall ever be in my
My soul shall glory in the
Lord; • let the humble hear and be glad.
O magnify the Lord with me; •
let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord and he
answered me • and delivered me from all my
Look upon him and be radiant •
and your faces shall not be ashamed.
This poor soul cried, and the
Lord heard me • and saved me from all my
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him • and delivers
O taste and see that the Lord
is gracious; • blessed is the one who
trusts in him.

Who is there who delights in
life • and longs for days to enjoy good
Keep your tongue from evil •
and your lips from lying words.
Turn from evil and do good; •

of the earth I call to you with fainting heart; •
O set me on the rock that is higher than I.
For you are my
refuge, • a strong

Let me dwell
in your tent for ever • and
take refuge under the cover of your wings.
For you, O
God, will hear my vows; • you
will grant the request of those who fear your name.
You will add
length of days to the life of the king, • that
his years may endure throughout all generations
May he sit
enthroned before God for ever; • may
steadfast love and truth watch over him.
So will I always sing praise to your name, • and day by day fulfil my vows.
