Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, * for his mercy endures for ever.   Who can declare the mighty acts of the LORD * or show forth all his praise?   Happy are those who act with justice * and always do what is right!   Remember me, O LORD, with the favor you have for your people, * and visit me with your saving help;   That I may see the prosperity of your elect and be glad with the gladness of your people, * that I may glory with your inheritance.   We have sinned as our forebears did; * we have done wrong and dealt wickedly.   In Egypt they did not consider your marvelous works, nor remember the abundance of your love; * they defied the Most High at the Red Sea.   But he saved them for his Name's sake, * to make his power known.   He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up, * and he led them through the deep as through a desert. 10   He saved them from the hand of those who hated them * and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11   The waters covered their oppressors; * not one of them was left. 12   Then they believed his words * and sang him songs of praise. 13   But they soon forgot his deeds * and did not wait for his counsel. 14   A craving seized them in the wilderness, * and they put God to the test in the desert. 15   He gave them what they asked, * but sent leanness into their soul. 16   They envied Moses in the camp, * and Aaron, the holy one of the LORD. 17   The earth opened and swallowed Dathan * and covered the company of Abiram. 18   Fire blazed up against their company, * and flames devoured the wicked.

Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice; * let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication.

3 For there is forgiveness with you; * therefore you shall be feared.

4 I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him; * in his word is my hope.

5 My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning, * more than watchmen for the morning.

7 With him there is plenteous redemption, * and he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.
