106.1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious : and his mercy endureth for ever.
106.2  Who can express the noble acts of the Lord : or shew forth all his praise?
86.5  For thou, Lord, art good and gracious : and of great mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86.9  All nations whom thou hadst made shall come and worship thee, O Lord : and shall glorify thy Name.
86.10  For thou art great, and doest wondrous things : thou art God alone.
106.3  Blessed are they that alway keep judgement : and do righteousness.
