Psalm

A Prayer of Thanks for Victory

1Give thanks to the LORD, because he is good,

and his love is eternal.

2Let the people of Israel say,

“His love is eternal.”

Psalms 118:1-2GNBOpen in Bible reader

19Open to me the gates of the Temple;

I will go in and give thanks to the LORD!

20This is the gate of the LORD;

only the righteous can come in.

21I praise you, LORD, because you heard me,

because you have given me victory.

22The stone which the builders rejected as worthless

turned out to be the most important of all.

23This was done by the LORD;

what a wonderful sight it is!

24This is the day of the LORD's victory;

let us be happy, let us celebrate!

25Save us, LORD, save us!

Give us success, O LORD!

26May God bless the one who comes in the name of the LORD!

From the Temple of the LORD we bless you.

27The LORD is God; he has been good to us.

With branches in your hands, start the festival

and march round the altar.

28You are my God, and I give you thanks;

I will proclaim your greatness.

29Give thanks to the LORD, because he is good,

and his love is eternal.
