Psalm 32

posted 30 Sept 2014, 03:40 by Mark Broomhead
Refrain:Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord.

1Happy the one whose transgression is forgiven, •
and whose sin is covered.

2Happy the one to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, •
and in whose spirit there is no guile.

3For I held my tongue; •
my bones wasted away
through my groaning all the day long.

4Your hand was heavy upon me day and night; •
my moisture was dried up like the drought in summer. R

5Then I acknowledged my sin to you •
and my iniquity I did not hide.

6I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ •
and you forgave the guilt of my sin.

7Therefore let all the faithful make their prayers to you
in time of trouble; •
in the great water flood, it shall not reach them.

8You are a place for me to hide in;
you preserve me from trouble; •
you surround me with songs of deliverance. R

9‘I will instruct you and teach you
in the way that you should go; •
I will guide you with my eye.

10‘Be not like horse and mule which have no understanding; •
whose mouths must be held with bit and bridle,
or else they will not stay near you.’

11Great tribulations remain for the wicked, •
but mercy embraces those who trust in the Lord.

12Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; •
shout for joy, all who are true of heart.

Refrain:Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord.

Give us honest hearts, O God,
and send your kindly Spirit
to help us confess our sins
and bring us the peace of your forgiveness;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
