The merciful and gracious Lord hath so done his marvellous works, that they ought to be had in remembrance. He hath given meat unto them that fear him; he shall ever be mindful of his covenant. He hath showed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgement; all his commandments are true. They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and equity. He sent redemption unto his people; he hath commanded his covenant for ever. Holy and reverend is his Name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all they that do thereafter. The praise of it endureth for ever.
