out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.
who have no confidence in the proud
or in those who worship idols.
Your plans for us are too numerous to list.

I have not been afraid to speak out,
as you, O Lord, well know.
I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power.
I have told everyone in the great assembly
of your unfailing love and faithfulness.
Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.
too many to count!
My sins pile up so high

You are my helper and my savior.
O my God, do not delay.
