FROM PSALM 118
“The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner stone.
This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day which the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
O LORD, save us, we beg You; O LORD, we beg You, do send prosperity!
Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD;
We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
The LORD is God, and He has given us light;
Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
You are my God, I extol You. Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
Singing the day away with you!
