The LORD is the Strength of His People

Blessed be the LORD!
        For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The LORD is my strength and my shield;
        in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
        and with my song I give thanks to him.

The LORD is the strength of his people;
        he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
        Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

—Psalm 28:6-9, ESV

The King of Glory

Lift up your heads, O gates!
        And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
        that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
        The LORD, strong and mighty,
        the LORD, mighty in battle!
Lift up your heads, O gates!
        And lift them up, O ancient doors,
        that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
        The LORD of hosts,
        he is the King of glory! Selah

—Psalm 24:7-10, ESV

The Steadfast Love of the LORD

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his steadfast love,
that he may deliver their soul from death
and keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.

—Psalm 33:18-22, ESV
