696 – I will extol the Lord

I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
My soul will boast in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
He delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
And he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
He delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the broken hearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Evil will slay the wicked;
The foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord Redeems his servants;
No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

– Psalm 34, N.I.V
