O mighty God, praise be thy name. For by the works of thy hand thy servant profit. Open my ears to your voice and my heart to your wisdom. O LORD, let the people dwell in wisdom. In the days ahead the wounded shall be bruised even more. And they that are not bruised shall be wounded. Darkness shall come upon this land and the hearts of men shall tremble. Shew mercy in thy lovingkindness, O LORD, and remember the works of thine own hand. Blessed is the LORD whose mercy endureth forever.
