O give thanks to the LORD, for [he is] good; for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say [so], whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, [and] he delivered them out of their distresses.
