Israel, trust in the Lord! He is their help and their shield. You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord! He is their help and shield.


I love the Lord, because He hears my voice, my prayers. For He turned His ear to me; all my days I will call upon Him. The pangs of death encompassed me, and the agonies of the grave came upon me, trouble and sorrow I encounter and I call upon the Name of the Lord: Please, Lord, deliver my soul! The Lord is gracious and just, our God is compassionate. The Lord watches over the simpletons; I was brought low and He saved me. Return, my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt kindly with you. For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my foot from stumbling. I will walk before the Lord in the lands of the living.
