Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever....
... it is good for me to draw near to God;
I have put my trust in the Lord God,
That I may declare all Your works.
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s....
The Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him...
The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head...
It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the Lord commanded the blessing—
