Psalm 118



1. Come, thank the LORD, his goodness praising;
his firm and steadfast love endures.
O Israel, O house of Aaron,
proclaim his love forever sure.
Let all who come to him in worship
be in his steadfast love secure.
Come to the LORD with your thanksgiving;
for evermore his love endures.

2. To God I cried in my affliction;
he answered me and set me free.
The LORD himself is my protection;
what can mere mortals do to me?
On all my foes I look in triumph;
with God I face them fearlessly.
I put no confidence in princes;
the LORD, he shall my refuge be.

3. I was surrounded by all nations,
but I subdued them in his name;
and though they swarmed like bees around me,
I beat them down like thorns aflame.
I nearly fell when they attacked me;
to my support the LORD then came.
He is my song and my salvation;
his strength is evermore the same.

4. Hear in the dwellings of the righteous
their shouts of joy and victory:
“The LORD’s right hand is strong and mighty;
he lifts it up triumphantly.”
I shall not die, but live and praise him;
in song his deeds my theme shall be,
for he who chastened me severely
has not to death surrendered me.

5. Let me now thank the LORD my Saviour;
unlock the gates of righteousness,
for this is where the righteous enter;
the gateway to the LORD it is.
I thank you, LORD, for you have heard me
and answered me in my distress.
You are the rock of my salvation;
with all my heart your name I bless.

6. The stone the builders had rejected
was chosen as the cornerstone.
This is a marvel unexpected,
the doing of the LORD alone.
This is the day he has created;
now let us sing with joyful tone.
Hosanna, LORD! Cause us to prosper.
LORD, bless all those who are your own.

7. Blest he who in the LORD’s name enters;
we bless you from his dwelling place.
The LORD is God; he shines upon us
the glorious brightness of his face.
Come, join the jubilant procession;
with boughs in hand, your voices raise.
Bind festal offerings to the altar
and worship him with shouts of praise.

8. You are my God, and I will praise you,
my rock and refuge, firm and sure.
You are my God; I will extol you,
for in your love I am secure.
Come to the LORD with your thanksgiving;
with joyful anthems him adore.
O thank the LORD for all his goodness;
his love endures for evermore.
