Give thanks to the Lord, for he is gracious,
for his faithfulness endures for ever.
2 Who can express the mighty acts of the Lord
or show forth all his praise?
3 Blessed are those who observe what is right
and always do what is just.
4 Remember me, O Lord, in the favour you bear for your people;
visit me in the day of your salvation;
5 That I may see the prosperity of your chosen
and rejoice in the gladness of your people,
and exult with your inheritance.
6 We have sinned like our forebears;
we have done wrong and dealt wickedly.
19 They made a calf at Horeb
and worshipped the molten image;
20 Thus they exchanged their glory
for the image of an ox that feeds on hay.
21 They forgot God their saviour,
who had done such great things in Egypt,
22 Wonderful deeds in the land of Ham
and fearful things at the Red Sea.
23 So he would have destroyed them,
had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach,
to turn away his wrath from consuming them.
