I will bless the Lord at all times;
Â Â Â his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
Â Â Â let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
Â Â Â and let us exalt his name together!
I sought the Lord, and he answered me
Â Â Â and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
Â Â Â and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
Â Â Â and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps
Â Â Â around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Â Â Â Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
Â Â Â for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
Â Â Â but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Come, O children, listen to me;
Â Â Â I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
What man is there who desires life
Â Â Â and loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil
Â Â Â and your lips from speaking deceit.
Turn away from evil and do good;
Â Â Â seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
Â Â Â and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
Â Â Â to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
Â Â Â and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
Â Â Â and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
Â Â Â but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
He keeps all his bones;
Â Â Â not one of them is broken.
Affliction will slay the wicked,
Â Â Â and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
Â Â Â none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
