1O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.
2Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from trouble
3and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
4Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to an inhabited town;
5hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.
6Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress;
7he led them by a straight way, until they reached an inhabited town.
8Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.
9For he satisfies the thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.
10Some sat in darkness and in gloom, prisoners in misery and in irons,
11for they had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High.
12Their hearts were bowed down with hard labor; they fell down, with no one to help.
13Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress;
14he brought them out of darkness and gloom, and broke their bonds asunder.
15Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.
