In the Light of Your countenance

O Lord God of hosts,

Who is mighty like You, O Lord?

Your faithfulness also surrounds You.

You rule the raging of the sea;

When its waves rise, You still them.

You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain;

You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.

The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;

The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.

The north and the south, You have created them;

Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.

You have a mighty arm;

Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;

Mercy and truth go before Your face.

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!

They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.

In Your name they rejoice all day long,

And in Your righteousness they are exalted.

For You are the glory of their strength,

And in Your favor our horn is exalted.

For our shield belongs to the Lord,

And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

(Psalms 89:8-18)
