1 Praise [a]the Lord, because he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
2 Let them, [b]which have been redeemed of the Lord, show how he hath delivered them from the hand of the oppressor,
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the East and from the West, from the North and from the [c]South.
4 When they wandered in the desert and wilderness out of the way, and found no city to dwell in,
5 [d]Both hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress,
7 And led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
