He Will Hold Me Fast [Song]
Jesus Paid It All [Song]
To the choirmaster: according to Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
 I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
 I will be glad and exult in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
 When my enemies turn back,
they stumble and perish before your presence.
 For you have maintained my just cause;
you have sat on the throne, giving righteous judgment.
 You have rebuked the nations; you have made the wicked perish;
you have blotted out their name forever and ever.
 The enemy came to an end in everlasting ruins;
their cities you rooted out;
the very memory of them has perished.
 But the LORD sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
 and he judges the world with righteousness;
he judges the peoples with uprightness.
 The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
 And those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. (ESV)
New City Catechism Q. 9. http://newcitycatechism.com/new-city-catechism/#9
 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
 She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
 She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.
 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
 She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
 She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
 Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
 She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates. (ESV)
