Let them thank the LORD for his | steadfast love,*
  for his wondrous works to the chil- | dren of men!
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for | he is good,*
  for his steadfast love endures for- | ever!
Let the redeemed of the LORD | say so,*
  whom he has redeemed from | trouble.
He raises up the needy out of af- | fliction*
  and makes their families | like flocks.
The upright see it | and are glad,*
  and all wickedness | shuts its mouth.
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.

Let them thank the LORD for his | steadfast love,*
  for his wondrous works to the chil- | dren of men!
