Blessed be the Lord!
For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lordis my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
The Lord is the strength of his people;

Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
Be their shepherd and carry them for ever.
