Moment for Reflection: Psalm 138
I give you thanks, O
Lord, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down towards your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness;
for you have exalted your name and your word
On the day I called, you answered me,

All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O
for they have heard the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the
for great is the glory of the
For though the
Lord is high, he regards the lowly;
but the haughty he perceives from far away.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies;

and your right hand delivers me.
Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O
Lord, endures for ever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.
