118 The Lord Is Always Merciful
1 Tell the Lord
118.1 1Ch 16.34; 2Ch 5.11
how thankful you are,
because he is kind
and always merciful.

2 Let Israel shout,
“God is always merciful!”
3 Let the family of Aaron
the priest shout,
“God is always merciful!”
4 Let every true worshiper
of the Lord shout,
“God is always merciful!”

5 When I was really hurting,
I prayed to the Lord.
He answered my prayer,
and took my worries away.
6 The Lord is on my side,
118.6 He 13.6.
and I am not afraid
of what others can do to me.
7 With the Lord on my side,
I will defeat all
of my hateful enemies.
8 It is better to trust the Lord
for protection
than to trust anyone else,
9 including strong leaders.

10 Nations surrounded me,
but I got rid of them
by the power of the Lord.
11 They attacked from all sides,
but I got rid of them
by the power of the Lord.
12 They swarmed around like bees,
but by the power of the Lord,
I got rid of them
and their fiery sting.
13 Their attacks were so fierce
that I nearly fell,
but the Lord helped me.
14 My power and my strength
118.14 Ex 15.2; Is 12.2.
come from the Lord,
and he has saved me.

15 From the tents of God's people
come shouts of victory:
“The Lord is powerful!
16 With his mighty arm
the Lord wins victories!
The Lord is powerful!”

17 And so my life is safe,
and I will live to tell
what the Lord has done.
18 He punished me terribly,
but he did not let death
lay its hands on me.

19 Open the gates of justice!
I will enter and tell the Lord
how thankful I am.

20 Here is the gate of the Lord!
Everyone who does right
may enter this gate.

21 I praise the Lord
for answering my prayers
and saving me.
22 The stone that the builders
118.22 Lk 20.17; Ac 4.11; 1P 2.7.
118.22,23 Mt 21.42; Mk 12.10,11.
tossed aside
has now become
the most important stone.

23 The Lord has done this,
and it is amazing to us.
24 This day belongs to the Lord!
Let's celebrate
and be glad today.
25 We'll ask the Lord to save us!
118.25 Mt 21.9; Mk 11.9; Jn 12.13.
We'll sincerely ask the Lord
to let us win.

26 God bless the one who comes
118.26 Mt 21.9; 23.39; Mk 11.9; Lk 13.35; 19.38; Jn 12.13.
in the name of the Lord!
We praise you from here
in the house of the Lord.

27 The Lord is our God,
and he has given us light!
Start the celebration!
March with palm branches
all the way to the altar.
e 118.27 Start ... altar: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.

28 The Lord is my God!
I will praise him and tell him
how thankful I am.

29 Tell the Lord
how thankful you are,
because he is kind
and always merciful.
