Leader: Do no fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
People: Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
Leader: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
People: I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me.
Leader: When you pass through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you.
People: I am weary with crying; my throat is parched.
Leader: When you walk through fire, you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
People: My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God.
Leader: Do not fear, for I am the Lord your God, the Holy one of Israel, your Savior.
(This Litany is well paired with “How Firm a Foundation.”)
