BLESSED be the Lord, because he has heard the voice of my supplications. The Lord is my strength, and my shield: my heart trust in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him.3 Come and hear, all you that fear God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul.3 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.1 God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ.3

1 Ps. 32:5; 2 Ps. 28:6-7; 3 Ps. 66:16
