R. They are happy,
the people God has chosen as his own.
1. They are happy, whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his own.
From the heavens the Lord looks forth,
he sees all the children of men. (R.)
2. From the place where he dwells he gazes
on all the dwellers on the earth,
he who shapes the hearts of them all
and considers all their deeds. (R.)
3. Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and our shield,
in him do our hearts find joy.
We trust in his holy name. (R.)
The word of the Lord remains for ever:
What is this word?
It is the Good News that has been brought to you.
