Blessed is the man who listens to Me...

For Thou hast been my help,
And in the shadow of Thy wings I sing for joy,
My soul clings to Thee;
Thy right hand upholds me."

By me kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
By me princes rule, and nobles,
All who judge rightly...
I walk in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice...'"

Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praises!

"Sing to the Lord a new song.
And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones...
For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.
Let the godly ones exult in glory;
Let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throat,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
To execute vengeance on the nations,
And punishment on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains,
And their nobles with fetters of iron;
To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the Lord!"

Psalm 149:1, 4-9

That shines brighter and brighter until the full day."
