I will extol the Lord at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the Lord;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him
Come – come, to give glory to our God ;
Lift praises to the Holy One –
Whose presence offers peace, renewed;
Whose light touch smooths the furrowed brow;
Let our all-embracing God love and welcome you.
Come – come, we worship the Risen Christ –
Let Her Spirit your burdens share,
And bring new radiance to your eyes;
Let angels shield you from your pain,
And your tongue sing out to the skies –
God is good.
Come, blessed are you, who take refuge in the Lord.
