Lyrics (Psalm 22:26-27, 28, 30, 31-32):
Response: I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
I will fulfill my vows before those who fear the LORD.
The lowly shall eat their fill;
they who seek the LORD shall praise him:
"May your hearts live forever!" Response
All the ends of the earth
shall remember and turn to the LORD;
all the families of the nations shall bow down before him. Response
To him alone shall bow down
all who sleep in the earth;
before him shall bend
all who go down into the dust. Response
And to him my soul shall live;
my descendants shall serve him.
Let the coming generation be told of the LORD
that they may proclaim to a people yet to be born
the justice he has shown. Response
