(Week 24 of the year: Wednesday)
R. They are happy, the people
whom the Lord has chosen as his own.
1. Give thanks to the Lord upon the harp,
with a ten-stringed lute sing him songs.
O sing him a song that is new,
play loudly, with all your skill. (R.)
2. For the word of the Lord is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right
and fills the earth with his love. (R.)
3. They are happy, whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his own.
May your love be upon us, O Lord,
as we place all our hope in you. (R.)
Accept God’s message for what it really is:
God’s message, and not some human thinking.
