Refrain

Rejoice in the Lord!

Rejoice and sing out your joy,

all you true of heart!

 

1

Blessed is the one

whose guilt has ' been forgiven, *

whose sin is ' released.

 

2

And happy are those

whose spirit ' God finds blameless *

and free from ' deceit.

 

Refrain

 

3

When I hid my guilt,

my body ' ached and withered. *

I moaned all ' day long.

 

4

Your hand was heavy.

My strength van ' ished like water *

in the sum ' mer sun.

 

5

But then I confessed

and my guilt ' was not hidden. *

You heard and ' forgave.

 

6

And so the faithful

who pray to you ' when floods rise *

will be ' protected.

 

Refrain

 

7

O Lord, you became

a safe hiding ' place for me, *

my deliv ' erance.

 

8

You people of God,

listen to what ' I have learned. *

Let my ' eyes guide you.

 

Refrain

 

9

Don't be horse or mule

who must be ' led with bridle *

to the things ' they need.

 

10

The wick ' ed know pain. *

Those who trust God will know a

merciful ' embrace.

 

Refrain:

 

11

Rejoice in the Lord!

Rejoice and sing out your joy,

all you true of heart!
