Psalm - Fifth Sunday after Epiphany
I will give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart:
even before the gods will I sing your praises.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name:
because of your faithfulness and your loving-kindness,
for you have made your name and your word
supreme over all things.
At a time when I called to you, you gave me answer:
and put new strength within my soul.
All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord:
for they have heard the words of your mouth;
And they shall sing of the ways of the Lord:
that the glory of the Lord is great.
For though the Lord is exalted, he looks upon the lowly:
and he comprehends the proud from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of danger,
yet will you preserve my life:
you will stretch out your hand against the fury of my
enemies, and your right hand shall save me.
The Lord will complete his purpose for me:
your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures for ever;
do not forsake the work of your own hands.
