Sing joyfully1 to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting2 for the upright3 to praise him.
Praise the LORD with the harp;4 make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.53
Sing to him a new song;6 play skillfully, and shout for joy.74
For the word of the LORD is right8 and true;9 he is faithful10 in all he does.
The LORD loves righteousness and justice;11 the earth is full of his unfailing love.126
By the word13 of the LORD were the heavens made,14 their starry host15 by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters16 of the sea into jarsa;17 he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the LORD;18 let all the people of the world19 revere him.209
For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded,21 and it stood firm.
The LORD foils22 the plans23 of the nations;24 he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm25 forever, the purposes26 of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,27 the people he chose28 for his inheritance.2913
From heaven the LORD looks down30 and sees all mankind;3114
from his dwelling place32 he watches all who live on earth--
he who forms33 the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.3416
No king is saved by the size of his army;35 no warrior escapes by his great strength.
A horse36 is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.
But the eyes37 of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,3819
to deliver them from death39 and keep them alive in famine.4020
We wait41 in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,42 for we trust in his holy name.4322
May your unfailing love44 rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.
