People: The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer. The Lord is my stronghold in whom I take refuge. The Lord is my shield and the horn of my salvation.
Leader: The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of perdition assailed me.
People: In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help.
Leader: The earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked.
People: He reached down from on high, he took me; he drew me out of mighty waters.
Leader: May God fill you and lead you forward.
People: Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed; he will answer from his holy heaven. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer.
