|Psalms 40: 2, 4, 7 - 8, 10 - 11
||He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
||Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods!
||Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
||I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."
||I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.
||Do not thou, O LORD, withhold thy mercy from me, let thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness ever preserve me!
