Blessed is the man You choose,
and cause to approach You,
That he may dwell in Your courts....
By awesome deeds in righteousness
You will answer us,
O God of our salvation....
Who established the mountains by His strength,
Being clothed with power;
You who still the noise of the seas,
The noise of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples.
You visit the earth and water it,
You greatly enrich it;
The river of God is full of water;
You provide their grain....
You crown the year with Your goodness....
come, let us sing to the Lord!
us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
us come before His presence with thanksgiving....
the Lord is the great God.....
sea is His, for He made it;
His hands formed the dry land.
come, let us worship and bow down;
us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture,
the sheep of His hand.
if you will hear His voice:
not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
in the day of trial in the wilderness,
your fathers tested Me;
tried Me, though they saw My work.
forty years I was grieved with that generation,
said, ‘It is a people who go astray in their hearts,
they do not know My ways.’
I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ "
Those who trust in the Lord are
like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
