"But I am like an olive tree
flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in God's unfailing love,
for ever and ever.
I will praise you forever for what you have done;
in your name I will hope,
for your name is good.
I will praise you in the presence of your saints."
"The Lord is gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the simplehearted;
when I was in great need,
he saved me.
Be at rest once more,
O my soul,
for the Lord has been good to you."
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is your faithfulness."
"For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen
those whose hearts are fully committed to him."
2 Chronicles 16:9
"Praise the Lord, Oh my soul;
all my inmost being,
praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord,
O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits -
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."
" . . . the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man
who trusts in him.
Rejoice in the Lord and be glad . . ."
