I will recount the LORD’s faithful acts;
I will sing the LORD’s praises,
because of all the LORD did for us,
for God’s great favor toward the house of Israel.
God treated them compassionately
and with deep affection.
God said, "Truly, they are my people,
children who won’t do what is wrong."
God became their savior.
During all their distress, God also was distressed,
so a messenger who served him saved them.
In love and mercy God redeemed them,
lifting and carrying them throughout earlier times.
