He humbled their hearts through suffering;
they stumbled with no one to help.
In their adversity they cried to the Lord,
and He rescued them from their troubles.
He brought them out of deepest darkness,
broke their bonds asunder.
Let them praise the Lord for His steadfast love.
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell all Your wonders.
I will rejoice and exult in You,
singing a hymn to Your name, O Most High.
A psalm. A song; for the sabbath day.
It is good to praise the Lord,
to sing hymns to Your name, O Most High,
to proclaim Your steadfast love at daybreak,
Your faithfulness each night. . .
Sing to the Lord a song of praise,
chant a hymn with a lyre to our G-d,
who covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
makes mountains put forth grass . . .
