Psalm 33. Exultate, justi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Sixth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous; *
    it is good for the just to sing praises.
  2. Praise the Lord with the harp; *
    play to him upon the psaltery and lyre.
  3. Sing for him a new song; *
    sound a fanfare with all your skill upon the trumpet.
  4. For the word of the Lord is right, *
    and all his works are sure.
  5. He loves righteousness and justice; *
    the loving-kindness of the Lord fills the whole earth.
  6. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, *
    by the breath of his mouth all the heavenly hosts.
  7. He gathers up the waters of the ocean as in a water-skin *
    and stores up the depths of the sea.
  8. Let all the earth fear the Lord; *
    let all who dwell in the world stand in awe of him.
  9. For he spoke, and it came to pass; *
    he commanded, and it stood fast.
  10. The Lord brings the will of the nations to naught; *
    he thwarts the designs of the peoples.
  11. But the Lord's will stands fast for ever, *
    and the designs of his heart from age to age.
  12. Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord! *
    happy the people he has chosen to be his own!
  13. The Lord looks down from heaven, *
    and beholds all the people in the world.
  14. From where he sits enthroned he turns his gaze *
    on all who dwell on the earth.
  15. He fashions all the hearts of them *
    and understands all their works.
  16. There is no king that can be saved by a mighty army; *
    a strong man is not delivered by his great strength.
  17. The horse is a vain hope for deliverance; *
    for all its strength it cannot save.
  18. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon those who fear him, *
    on those who wait upon his love,
  19. To pluck their lives from death, *
    and to feed them in time of famine.
  20. Our soul waits for the Lord; *
    he is our help and our shield.
  21. Indeed, our heart rejoices in him, *
    for in his holy Name we put our trust.
  22. Let your loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, *
    as we have put our trust in you.
