Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
Has the LORD redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has saved you from your enemies.
For he has gathered the exiles from many lands, from east and west, from north and south.
Some wandered in the desert, lost and homeless.
Hungry and thirsty, they nearly died.
"LORD, help!" they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress.
He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live.
