R. The just man’s mouth utters wisdom.
1. Commit your life to the Lord,
trust in him and he will act,
so that your justice breaks forth like the light,
your cause like the noon-day sun. (R.)
2. The just man’s mouth utters wisdom
and his lips speak what is right;
the law of his God is in his heart,
his steps shall be saved from stumbling. (R.)
3. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord,
their stronghold in time of distress.
The Lord helps them and delivers them
and saves them: for their refuge is in him. (R.)
Our Saviour Christ Jesus abolished death,
and he has proclaimed life through the Good News.
