Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 138
Give Thanks to the Lord
1I give you thanks, O Lord, with | my whole heart;*
before the gods I | sing your praise;
2I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your | faithfulness,*
for you have exalted above all things
your name | and your word.
3On the day I called, you | answered me;*
my strength of soul | you increased.
4All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, | O Lord,*
for they have heard the words | of your mouth,
5and they shall sing of the ways | of the Lord,*
for great is the glory | of the Lord.
6For though the Lord is high, he regards the | lowly,*
but the haughty he knows | from afar.
7Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you pre- | serve my life;*
you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and your right hand de- | livers me.
8The Lord will fulfill his pur- | pose for me;*
your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work | of your hands.
