I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, ♦
in the company of the faithful and in the congregation.
2 The works of the Lord are great, ♦
sought out by all who delight in them.
3 His work is full of majesty and honour ♦
and his righteousness endures for ever.
4 He appointed a memorial for his marvellous deeds; ♦
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
5 He gave food to those who feared him; ♦
he is ever mindful of his covenant.
6 He showed his people the power of his works ♦
in giving them the heritage of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are truth and justice; ♦
all his commandments are sure.
8 They stand fast for ever and ever; ♦
they are done in truth and equity.
9 He sent redemption to his people;
he commanded his covenant for ever; ♦
holy and awesome is his name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
a good understanding have those who live by it; ♦
his praise endures for ever.
