|Psalms 40: 3 - 4, 10 - 11, 17
||He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
||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!
||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!
||As for me, I am poor and needy; but the Lord takes thought for me. Thou art my help and my deliverer; do not tarry, O my God!
