But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
O Lord, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid; You have loosed my bonds. I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call on the name of the Lord.
I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!
To show forth Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night,
I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call on the name of the Lord.
I will confess, praise, and give thanks to You, for You have heard and answered me; and You have become my Salvation and Deliverer.
But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.
And [now] they sing a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the scroll and to break the seals that are on it, for You were slain (sacrificed), and with Your blood You purchased men unto God from every tribe and language and people and nation.
Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
My lips shall shout for joy when I sing praises to You, and my inner being, which You have redeemed.
Sing to the Lord, all the earth; show forth from day to day His salvation.
Sing to the Lord, bless (affectionately praise) His name; show forth His salvation from day to day.
