Psalm text (Ps 33:12+18, 20-21, 22)

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

Bless is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen for his own inheritance.
But see, the eyes of the Lord are upon those who fear him,
upon those who hope for his kindness.

Our soul waits for the Lord,
who is our help and our shield.
For in him our hearts rejoice;
in his holy name we trust.

May your kindness, O Lord, be upon us
who have put our hope in you.
