Hallelujah! Thank God! And why? Because he's good, because his love lasts.
But who on earth can do it - declaim God's mighty acts, broadcast all his praises?
You're one happy man when you do what's right, one happy woman when you form the habit of justice.
Remember me, God, when you enjoy your people; include me when you save them;
I want to see your chosen succeed, celebrate with your celebrating nation, join the Hallelujahs of your pride and joy!
We've sinned a lot, both we and our parents; We've fallen short, hurt a lot of people.
