We give thanks to God who does not let the wicked utterly destroy the righteous.

KJV Text:

KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 75:

     1 To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. 2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. 3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah. 4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: 5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.

     6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. 8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them. 9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.(KJV)

The King of Love My Shepherd Is

1. The King of Love my Shepherd is, 
Whose goodness faileth never; 
I nothing lack if I am His 
And He is mine forever. 

2. Where streams of living water flow, 
My ransomed soul He leadeth, 
And where the verdant pastures grow, 
With food celestial feedeth. 

3. Perverse and foolish oft I strayed, 
But yet in love He sought me 
And on His shoulder gently laid 
And home, rejoicing, brought me. 

4. In death’s dark vale I fear no ill, 
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me; 
Thy rod and staff my comfort still, 
Thy cross before to guide me. 

5. Thou spreadst a table in my sight, 
Thy unction grace bestoweth; 
And, oh! the transport of delight 
With which my cup o’erfloweth. 

6. And so through all the length of days 
Thy goodness faileth never. 
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise 
Within Thy house forever!
