I Love the Psalms

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces shall never be ashamed.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,
And rescues them.
O Taste and see that the LORD is good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Many are the afflictions of the righteous;
But the LORD delivers him out of them all.
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
I would have despaired unless I had believed
that I would see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
Be strong, and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD.
Make us glad as many days as Thou has afflicted us,
And the years we have seen evil.
Let Thy work appear to Thy servants,
And Thy majesty to their children.
And let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
And do give permanence to the work of our hands;
Yes, give permanence to the work of our hands.
Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.
For Thou hast rescued my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
My feet from stumbling.
I shall walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they train for war.
And each of them will sit under his vine
And under his fig tree,
With no one to make them afraid,
For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.

from Psalm 34, 27, 90, 116, & Micah 4
