Give thanks to ADONAI; for he is good, for his grace continues forever.
Let those redeemed by ADONAI say it, those he redeemed from the power of the foe.
He gathered them from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the sea.
They wandered in the desert, on paths through the wastes, without finding any inhabited city.
They were hungry and thirsty, their life was ebbing away.
In their trouble they cried to ADONAI, and he rescued them from their distress.
