To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth-- Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD. Psalm 40:1-3 (NKJV)
LORD, set my feet uupon the rock and put a new song in my mouth -- praise to you our God.
I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth From the great assembly. Psalm 40:10 (NKJV)
LORD, help me openly declare your righteousness.
Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let such as love Your salvation say continually, "The LORD be magnified!" Psalm 40:16 (NKJV)
Jesus, help me love and proclaim your salvation.
A word received: Wait on me for my redemption.
