    His mercy endures for ever.
  4. Let those who fear the Lord now proclaim, *
    His mercy endures for ever.
  5. I called to the Lord in my distress; *
    the Lord answered by setting me free.
  6. The Lord is at my side, therefore I will not fear; *
    what can anyone do to me?
  7. The Lord is at my side to help me; *
    I will triumph over those who hate me.
  8. It is better to rely on the Lord *
    than to put any trust in flesh.
  9. It is better to rely on the Lord *
    than to put any trust in rulers.
  10. All the ungodly encompass me; *
    in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
  11. They hem me in, they hem me in on every side; *
    in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
  12. They swarm about me like bees; they blaze like a fire of thorns; *
    in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
  13. I was pressed so hard that I almost fell, *
    but the Lord came to my help.
  14. The Lord is my strength and my song, *
    and he has become my salvation.
  15. There is a sound of exultation and victory *
    in the tents of the righteous:
  16. "The right hand of the Lord has triumphed! *
    the right hand of the Lord is exalted! the right hand of the Lord has triumphed!"
  17. I shall not die, but live, *
    and declare the works of the Lord.
  18. The Lord has punished me sorely, *
    but he did not hand me over to death.
  19. Open for me the gates of righteousness; *
    I will enter them; I will offer thanks to the Lord.
  20. "This is the gate of the Lord; *
    he who is righteous may enter."
  21. I will give thanks to you, for you answered me *
    and have become my salvation.
  22. The same stone which the builders rejected *
    has become the chief cornerstone.
  23. This is the Lord's doing, *
    and it is marvelous in our eyes.
  24. On this day the Lord has acted; *
    we will rejoice and be glad in it.
  25. Hosannah, Lord, hosannah! *
    Lord, send us now success.
  26. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; *
    we bless you from the house of the Lord.
  27. God is the Lord; he has shined upon us; *
    form a procession with branches up to the horns of the altar.
  28. "You are my God, and I will thank you; *
    you are my God, and I will exalt you."
  29. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; *
    his mercy endures for ever.
