* 1 Praise the Lord!
I will thank the Lord with all my heart
as I meet with his godly people.
All who delight in him should ponder them.
His righteousness never fails.
How gracious and merciful is our Lord!
he always remembers his covenant.
by giving them the lands of other nations.
and all his commandments are trustworthy.
to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.
He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever.
What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has!
All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom.
Praise him forever!
