I give thanks to You, for You are good! Your mercy endures forever. When I call to You in distress, You answer me. With You on my side I have nothing to fear. I place my trust and confidence in You. You are my strength, my song and my salvation. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help me to declare Your works.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Psalm 118:1-18 NKJV “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Let Israel now say, “His mercy endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron now say, “His mercy endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord now say, “His mercy endures forever.”
I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
The Lord is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me.
It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in princes.
All nations surrounded me, But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They surrounded me, Yes, they surrounded me; But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They surrounded me like bees; They were quenched like a fire of thorns; For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
You pushed me violently, that I might fall, But the Lord helped me.
The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.
The voice of rejoicing and salvation Is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
The right hand of the Lord is exalted; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord has chastened me severely, But He has not given me over to death.”
