Do not despair

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Has your God forsaken you?
Are you not a child of the living God,
A sheep of His pasture?

Too numerous to count are His blessings toward you.
Open your eyes and see the work of His mighty hand!
Say to God, "How awesome are Your deeds!"
Shout to God, "How great is Your faithfulness!"

Lift up your eyes, O my soul, to the hills,
To the Lord your God who sits enthroned on high.
Lift up your eyes and do not despair,
for the Lord your God is with you.
