Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp. For the Lord takes delight in his people .
Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth. … Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Whoever fears the Lord has a secure fortress.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.
First seek the counsel of the Lord. … Seek his kingdom.
