1. I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.
2. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart.
3. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.
4. I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.
5. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
6. In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles.
7. For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.
8. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
