His Chesed Endures Forever
1Praise Adonai, for He is good, for His lovingkindness endures forever.
2O let Israel say: For His lovingkindness endures forever.
3O let the house of Aaron say: For His lovingkindness endures forever.
4O let those who fear Adonai say: For His lovingkindness endures forever.
5Out of a tight place I called on Adonai— Adonai answered me with a spacious place.
6Adonai is for me—I will not fear! What can man do to me?
7Adonai is for me, as my helper. I will see the downfall of those who hate me.
8It is better to take refuge in Adonai than to trust in man.
9It is better to take refuge in Adonai than to trust in princes.
10All nations surrounded me— in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
11They surrounded me, yes, all around me— in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
12They swarmed around me like bees— they were extinguished like burning thorns— in the Name of Adonai I cut them off.
13You pushed me hard to make me fall, but Adonai helped me.
14Adonai is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.
15Shouts of joy and victory are in the tents of the righteous: “Adonai’s right hand is mighty!
16Adonai’s right hand is lifted high! Adonai’s right hand is mighty!”
17I will not die, but live, and proclaim what Adonai has done!
18Adonai has chastened me hard, but has not given me over to death.
19Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and praise Adonai.
20This is the gate of Adonai— the righteous will enter through it.
21I give You thanks, because You have answered me and have become my salvation.
22The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone.
23It is from Adonai: it is marvelous in our eyes!
24This is the day that Adonai has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
25Hoshia-na! Please, Adonai, save now! We beseech You, Adonai, prosper us!
26Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai— Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Adonai. We bless you from the House of Adonai.
27Adonai is God, and He has given us light. Join the festival with branches, up to the horns of the altar.
28You are my God, and I praise You. You are my God—I exalt You!
29Praise Adonai, for He is good, for His lovingkindness endures forever.
