1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
2 Let Israel say:
3 Let the house of Aaron say:
4 Let those who fear the LORD say:
5 In my anguish I cried to the LORD,
6 The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid.
7 The LORD is with me; he is my helper.
8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
10 All the nations surrounded me,
11 They surrounded me on every side,
12 They swarmed around me like bees,
13 I was pushed back and about to fall,
14 The LORD is my strength and my song;
