Light in the Darkness. The Light of THANKSGIVING.
1 Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good; his love endures forever. 2 Let Israel say: "His love endures forever." 3 Let the house of Aaron say: "His love endures forever." 4 Let those who fear the LORD say: "His love endures forever." 5 In my anguish I cried to the LORD , and he answered by setting me free. 6 The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
19 Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD . 20 This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter. 21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. 22 The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; 23 the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25 O LORD , save us; O LORD , grant us success. 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD . From the house of the LORD we bless you.27 The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine upon us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you. 29 Give thanks to the LORD , for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 118:1-6, 19-29
