Who Trusts in the Lord ~ Part I

I waited patiently for the Lord; 
And He inclined to me
and heard my cry.
He brought me up
out of the pit of destruction,
out of the miry clay,

And He set my feet upon a rock
making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God;

Many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
And does not respect the proud,
nor such as turn aside to lies.

Many, O Lord my God,
are Your wonderful works

Which You have done
And Your thoughts toward us.
None can compare with you;
were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
they would be too many to declare.

Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
My ears You have opened.
Burnt offering and sin offering
You did not require.
Then I said, “Behold, I come;

In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
I delight to do Your will, O my God,
And Your law is within my heart.”
~ Psalm 40:1-8
