Let the redeemed1 of the LORD say this-- those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
those he gathered2 from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.a4
Some wandered in desert3 wastelands, finding no way to a city4 where they could settle.
They were hungry5 and thirsty,6 and their lives ebbed away.
Then they cried out7 to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way8 to a city9 where they could settle.
Let them give thanks10 to the LORD for his unfailing love11 and his wonderful deeds12 for men,
