Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29

Thank God, because God is good.
God’s love is always reliable.
Let Israel say:
“God’s love is always reliable.”
Let the clergy say:
“God’s love is always reliable.”
Let everyone who follow God say:
“God’s love is always reliable.”

Open the gates to what’s right
So I can enter through them
And thank God.
It’s God’s gate,
And those who do right will enter it.

I thank you for answering me,
And for helping me, and rescuing me.
The stone that didn’t pass quality control
Is now the stone holding up the whole building.
God did this. It’s amazing to see.
God made this day.
Let’s celebrate and live it up!

Rescue us, God. We’re imploring you.
We’re imploring you for success.

The one who comes in God’s name is special.
We acclaim you from God’s house.
God is God,
And God has lit our way
As we march in a ticker-tape parade up to the altar.

You are my God. I will thank you.
You are my God. I will rave about you.

Thank God. God is good.
God’s love is always reliable.
