Charm is deceitful, beauty is vain,
but a person who fears the Lord
is to be praised
To fear the Lord is to trust the Lord.
This is a respectful rest in His perfect power and in His miraculous moving
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear God and delivers them.
As the heavens are high above the earth so great is his steadfast love toward us who fear him
As a father pities his children,
so the Lord pities those who fear Him
He fulfills the desire of all who fear Him
The eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
on those who hope in his mercy
The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
in those who hope in His mercy
