May we enjoy, O Lord, Your faithful care,
as we put our hope in You.
The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord;
all who practice it gain sound understanding.
God is our refuge and stronghold,
a help in trouble, very near.
Therefore we are not afraid
though the earth reels,
though mountains topple into the sea ~
its waters rage and foam;
in its swell mountains quake. Selah. . . .
[but] The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our haven. Selah.
Tehillim/Psalms 46.2-4, 12
You made springs gush forth in torrents;
they make their way between the hills,
giving drink to all the wild beasts;
the wild asses slake their thirst.
The birds of the sky dwell beside them
and sing among the foliage.
You water the mountains from Your lofts;
the earth is sated from the fruit of Your work.

O Lord, You have been our refuge in every generation.
Before the mountains came into being,
before You brought forth the earth and the world,
from eternity to eternity, You are God.
Be patient and wait for the Lord,
do not be vexed by the prospering man who carries out his scheme.
Give up anger, abandon fury,
do not be vexed;
it can only do harm.
Hear my voice, O Lord, at daybreak;
at daybreak I plead before You, and wait . . . .
O Lord, lead me along Your righteous path . . .
make Your way straight before me.
