Psalm 107

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good:
for his loving mercy is for ever.

2 Let the Lord's redeemed say so:
whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.

3 And gathered from every land, from the east and from the west:
from the north and from the south.

4 Some went astray in the wilderness and in the desert:
and found no path to an inhabited city;

5 They were hungry and thirsty:
and their heart fainted within them.

6 Then they cried to the Lord in their distress:
and he took them out of their trouble.

7 He led them by the right path:
till they came to an inhabited city.

8 Let them thank the Lord for his goodness:
and for the wonders that he does for the children of Adam;

9 For he satisfies the thirsty:
and fills the hungry with good things.

I, God, am in your midst.
Whoever knows me can never fall,
Not in the heights,
Not in the depths,
Not in the breadths,
For I am love,
Which the vast expanses of evil
Can never still.

Hildegard of Bingen
