His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

1 1Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! 2 2Let Israel say, "His steadfast love endures forever." 3 3Let the house of Aaron say, "His steadfast love endures forever." 4 4Let those who fear the LORD say, "His steadfast love endures forever." 5 5Out of my distress I 6called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me 7free. 6 8The LORD is on my side; 9I will not fear. What can man do to me? 7 10The LORD is on my side as my helper; I shall 11look in triumph on those who hate me. 8 12It is better to take refuge in the LORD 13than to trust in man. 9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD 14than to trust in princes. 10 15All nations surrounded me; in the name of the LORD I cut them off! 11 They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side; in the name of the LORD I cut them off! 12 16They surrounded me like bees; they went out like 17a fire among thorns; in the name of the LORD I cut them off! 13 I was 18pushed hard,a so that I was falling, but the LORD helped me. 14 The LORD is my strength and my song; 19he has become my salvation. 15 Glad songs of salvation are in the tents of the righteous: 20"The right hand of the LORD 21does valiantly, 16 the right hand of the LORD exalts, the right hand of the LORD 22does valiantly!" 17 23I shall not die, but I shall live, and 24recount the deeds of the LORD. 18 The LORD has 25disciplined me severely, but he has not given me over to death. 19 26Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the LORD. 20 This is the gate of the LORD; 27the righteous shall enter through it. 21 I thank you that 28you have answered me 29and have become my salvation. 22 30The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.b 23 This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. 25 Save us, we pray, O LORD! O LORD, we pray, give us success! 26 31Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We 32bless you from the house of the LORD. 27 The LORD is God, and he has made 33his light to shine upon us. Bind the festal sacrifice with cords, up to 34the horns of the altar! 28 You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will 35extol you. 29 36Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
