Psalm 66. 8-12

O Beloved, we bless you.          A song of praise rises,          unbeckoned, within us. You have kept the life in us alive.          You haven't let our feet slip.

You have been with us in all our trials.          You have been the silver in us          when we went through the refiner's fire. When we were trapped          you held us firm. In all our burdens it was you          who were the weight on our backs. People rode over our heads          but you were within us.

We went through fire.          We went through water. And you brought us out          to a spacious place. How can we not thank you,          even in our troubles? Even in our troubles,          how can we not thank you?
