I will bless the LORD at | all times;*
  his praise shall continually be | in my mouth.
I sought the LORD, and he | answered me*
  and delivered me from | all my fears.
Those who look to him are | radiant,*
  and their faces shall never | be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the LORD | heard him*
  and saved him out of all his | troubles.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who | fear him,*
  and de- | livers them.
Oh, taste and see that the | LORD is good!*
  Blessèd is the man who takes ref- | uge in him!
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

I will bless the LORD at | all times;*
  his praise shall continually be | in my mouth.
