I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever;
with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.
For thy steadfast love was established for ever,
thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.
Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to David my servant:
'I will establish your descendants for ever,
and build your throne for all generations.'" [Selah]
Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD,
thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones!
For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD?
Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD,
a God feared in the council of the holy ones,
great and terrible above all that are round about him?
O LORD God of hosts,
who is mighty as thou art, O LORD,
with thy faithfulness round about thee?
Thou dost rule the raging of the sea;
when its waves rise, thou stillest them.
Thou didst crush Rahab like a carcass,
thou didst scatter thy enemies with thy mighty arm.
The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine;
the world and all that is in it, thou hast founded them.
The north and the south, thou hast created them;
Tabor and Hermon joyously praise thy name.
Thou hast a mighty arm;
strong is thy hand, high thy right hand.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne;
steadfast love and faithfulness go before thee.
Blessed are the people who know the festal shout,
who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance,
who exult in thy name all the day,
and extol thy righteousness.
For thou art the glory of their strength;
by thy favor our horn is exalted.
For our shield belongs to the LORD,
our king to the Holy One of Israel.
