Psalm 92: Flourishing and Bearing Fruit
as sung by Stephen and Theresa Kasperick-Postellon
It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your faithful love in the morning,
and your truth in the watches of the night,
on the ten-stringed lute and the harp,
with the sound of song on the lyre.
You have gladdened me, O LORD, by your deeds;
for the work of your hands I shout with joy.
O LORD, how great are your works!
How deep are your designs!
The senseless cannot know this,
and the fool cannot understand.
Though the wicked spring up like grass,
and all who do evil thrive,
they are doomed to be eternally destroyed.
But you, O LORD, are eternally on high.
See, your enemies, O LORD,
see, your enemies will perish;
all who do evil will be scattered.
You give me the strength of a wild ox;
you have poured out on me purest oil.
My eyes looked in triumph on my foes;
my ears have heard of their fall.
The righteous will flourish like the palm tree,
and grow like a Lebanon cedar.
Planted in the house of the LORD,
they will flourish in the courts of our God,
still bearing fruit when they are old,
still full of sap, still green,
to proclaim that the LORD is upright.
In God, my rock, there is no wrong.
