- Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
- Let the redeemed of the LORD say this-- those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
- those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.
- Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle.
- They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away.
- Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
- Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
- And gathered from the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south.
- They wandered in the wilderness in a desert region; They did not find a way to an inhabited city.
- They were hungry and thirsty; Their soul fainted within them.
