The LORD reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad!

In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.

which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered.
