Psalm 33

REJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous: for it becometh well the just to be thankful. 
Praise the Lord with harp: sing praises unto him with the lute, and instrument of ten strings. 
Sing unto the Lord a new song: sing praises lustily unto him with a good courage. 
For the word of the Lord is true: and all his works are faithful. 
He loveth righteousness and judgement: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. 
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made: and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth. 
He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap: and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house. 
Let all the earth fear the Lord: stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world. For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood fast. 
The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: and maketh the devices of the people to be of none effect, and casteth out the counsels of princes. 
The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever: and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation. Blessed are the people, whose God is the Lord Jehovah: and blessed are the folk, that he hath chosen to him to be his inheritance. 
The Lord looked down from heaven, and beheld all the children of men: from the habitation of his dwelling he considereth all them that dwell on the earth. 
He fashioneth all the hearts of them: and understandeth all their works. 
There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of an host: neither is any mighty man delivered by much strength. 
A horse is counted but a vain thing to save a man: neither shall he deliver any man by his great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him: and upon them that put their trust in his mercy; 
To deliver their soul from death: and to feed them in the time of dearth. 
Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord: for he is our help and our shield. 
For our heart shall rejoice in him: because we have hoped in his holy Name. 
Let thy merciful kindness, 
O Lord, be upon us: like as we do put our trust in thee.
