I love the Lord, because he is kind,
For he hath inclined his ear unto me;
Upon him, as long as I live, therefore will I call.
I called to God in my trouble,
And he heard the voice of my complaint.
When I was in misery he delivered me.
Blessed is the name of the Lord God,
Merciful, slow to anger, abundant in goodness,
Forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah to the Lord.
