Proclaim with me the Lord's greatness; let us praise his name together!
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me; he freed me from all my fears.
The oppressed look to him and are glad; they will never be disappointed.
The helpless call to him, and he answers; he saves them from all their troubles.
His angel guards those who honor the Lord and rescues them from danger.
Find out for yourself how good the Lord is. 1 Happy are those who find safety with him.
Honor the Lord, all his people; those who obey him have all they need.
Even lions go hungry for lack of food, but those who obey the Lord lack nothing good.
Come, my young friends, and listen to me, and I will teach you to honor the Lord.
Would you like to enjoy life? 2 Do you want long life and happiness?
Then keep from speaking evil and from telling lies.
