Psalm of the Day Bread of Life 6 February 2021
1Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises | to our God;*
for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is | fitting.
2The Lord builds up Je- | rusalem;*
he gathers the outcasts of | Israel.
3He heals the broken- | hearted*
and binds | up their wounds.
4He determines the number | of the stars;*
he gives to all of | them their names.
5Great is our Lord, and abun- | dant in power;*
his understanding is beyond | measure.
6The Lord lifts up the | humble;*
he casts the wicked | to the ground.
7Sing to the Lord with thanks- | giving;*
make melody to our God | on the lyre!
8He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares rain | for the earth;*
he makes grass grow | on the hills.
9He gives to the | beasts their food,*
and to the young ravens | that cry.
10His delight is not in the strength | of the horse,*
nor his pleasure in the legs | of a man,
11but the Lord takes pleasure in those who | fear him,*
in those who hope in his | steadfast love.
