The Lord is kind and does what is right; our God is merciful.
The Lord watches over the foolish; when I was helpless, he saved me.
I said to myself, “Relax, because the Lord takes care of you.”
Lord, you saved me from death.
You stopped my eyes from crying; you kept me from being defeated.
So I will walk with the Lord in the land of the living.
- Psalm 116: 5-9; CEV, (Lectionary Psalm for this week)
