Hymn of a Grateful Heart

Of David.

I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; before the gods to you I sing.

I bow low toward your holy temple; I praise your name for your fidelity and love.

For you have exalted over all your name and your promise.

When I cried out, you answered; you strengthened my spirit.

All the kings of earth will praise you, Lord, when they hear the words of your mouth.

They will sing of the ways of the Lord: "How great is the glory of the Lord!"

The Lord is on high, but cares for the lowly and knows the proud from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of dangers, you guard my life when my enemies rage.

You stretch out your hand; your right hand saves me.

The Lord is with me to the end.

Lord, your love endures forever.

Never forsake the work of your hands!
