How good it is to give thanks to the Eternal
and to praise Your name with song, O Most High;
to speak of Your unfailing love in the morning
and rehearse Your faithfulness as night begins to fall.
How good it is to praise to the sound of strings—lute and harp—
the stirring melodies of the lyre.
Because You, O Eternal One,
thrill me with the things You have done,
I will sing with joy in light of Your deeds.
