DEC 9: Hope in God, My Soul

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
   Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
   my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
   he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

Praise the Lord, my soul,
   and forget not all his benefits.

Praise the Lord,
   Praise the Lord, my soul.

Ps. 42:5, Ps. 62:5-6, Ps. 103:2, Ps. 146:1, NIV
