Praise of the Lord's Power and Providence
2 Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
3 Sing to God a new song;
4 For the LORD'S word is true;
5 The LORD loves justice and right and fills the earth with goodness.
6 By the LORD'S word the heavens were made;
7 The waters of the sea were gathered as in a bowl;
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD;
9 For he spoke, and it came to be,
10 The LORD foils the plan of nations,
11 But the plan of the LORD stands forever,
12 Happy the nation whose God is the LORD,
13 From heaven the LORD looks down and observes the whole human race,
14 Surveying from the royal throne all who dwell on earth.
15 The one who fashioned the hearts of them all knows all their works.
16 A king is not saved by a mighty army,
17 Useless is the horse for safety;
18 But the LORD'S eyes are upon the reverent,
19 Delivering them from death,
20 Our soul waits for the LORD,
21 For in God our hearts rejoice;
22 May your kindness, LORD, be upon us;
