Thanksgiving for Victory 118 1Thank the Lord because he is good. His love continues forever. 2Let the people of Israel say, “His love continues forever.” 3Let the family of Aaron say, “His love continues forever.” 4Let those who respect the Lord say, “His love continues forever.” 5I was in trouble, so I called to the Lord. The Lord answered me and set me free. 6I will not be afraid, because the Lord is with me. People can’t do anything to me. 7The Lord is with me to help me, so I will see my enemies defeated. 8It is better to trust the Lord than to trust people. 9It is better to trust the Lord than to trust princes. 10All the nations surrounded me, but I defeated them in the name of the Lord. 11They surrounded me on every side, but with the Lord’s power I defeated them. 12They surrounded me like a swarm of bees, but they died as quickly as thorns burn. By the Lord’s power, I defeated them. 13They chased me until I was almost defeated, but the Lord helped me. 14The Lord gives me strength and a song. He has saved me. 15Shouts of joy and victory come from the tents of those who do right: “The Lord has done powerful things.” 16The power of the Lord has won the victory; with his power the Lord has done mighty things. 17I will not die, but live, and I will tell what the Lord has done. 18The Lord has taught me a hard lesson, but he did not let me die. 19Open for me the Temple gates. Then I will come in and thank the Lord. 20This is the Lord’s gate; only those who are good may enter through it. 21Lord, I thank you for answering me. You have saved me. 22The stone that the builders rejected became the cornerstone. 23The Lord did this, and it is wonderful to us. 24This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad today! 25Please, Lord, save us; please, Lord, give us success. 26God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless all of you from the Temple of the Lord. 27The Lord is God, and he has shown kindness to us. With branches in your hands, join the feast. Come to the corners of the altar. 28You are my God, and I will thank you; you are my God, and I will praise your greatness. 29Thank the Lord because he is good. His love continues forever.
