From Psalm 92

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,
To proclaim your love at daybreak,
your faithfulness in the night,
How great are your works, LORD!
How profound your designs!
The just shall flourish like the palm tree,
shall grow like a cedar of Lebanon.
*Planted in the house of the LORD,
they shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall bear fruit even in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,
To proclaim: “The LORD is just;
my rock, in whom there is no wrong.”
