The Lord looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. from his throne he observes all who live on earth. He made their hearts, so he understands everything they do....But the lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing Love. he rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. we put our hope in the lord. he is our help and our shield. in him our hearts rejoice,for we trust in his holy name. let your unfailing love surround us. Lord, for our hope is in you alone.
