I put all my hope in the LORD. He leaned down to me; he listened to my cry for help.
He lifted me out of the pit of death, out of the mud and filth, and set my feet on solid rock. He steadied my legs.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise for our God. Many people will learn of this and be amazed; they will trust the LORD.
Those who put their trust in the LORD, who pay no attention to the proud or to those who follow lies, are truly happy!
You, LORD my God! You've done so many things— your wonderful deeds and your plans for us— no one can compare with you! If I were to proclaim and talk about all of them, they would be too numerous to count!
You don't relish sacrifices or offerings; you don't require entirely burned offerings or compensation offerings— but you have given me ears!
