Psalm 105, Part I
1 Give thanks to the LORD and call upon his Name;*
make known his deeds among the peoples.

2 Sing to him, sing praises to him,*
and speak of all his marvelous works.

3 Glory in his holy Name;*
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.

4 Search for the LORD and his strength;*
continually seek his face.

5 Remember the marvels he has done,*
his wonders and the judgments of his mouth,

6 O offspring of Abraham his servant,*
O children of Jacob his chosen.

7 He is the LORD our God;*
his judgments prevail in all the world.

8 He has always been mindful of his covenant,*
the promise he made for a thousand generations:

9 The covenant he made with Abraham,*
the oath that he swore to Issac,

10 Which he established as a statute for Jacob,*
an everlasting covenant for Israel,

11 Saying, “To you will I give the land of Canaan*
to be your allotted inheritance.”

12 When they were few in number,*
of little account, and sojourners in the land,

13 Wandering from nation to nation*
and from one kingdom to another,

14 He let no one oppress them*
and rebuked kings for their sake,

15 Saying, “Do not touch my anointed*
and do my prophets no harm.”

16 Then he called for a famine in the land*
and destroyed the supply of bread.

17 He sent a man before them,*
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.

18 They bruised his feet in fetters;*
his neck they put in an iron collar.

19 Until his prediction came to pass,*
the word of the LORD tested him.

20 The king sent and released him;*
the ruler of the peoples set him free.

21 He set him as a master over his household,*
as a ruler over all his possessions,

22 To instruct his princes according to his will*
and to teach his elders wisdom.

A Collect for the Renewal of Life
O God, the King eternal, whose light divides the day from the night and turns the shadow of death into the morning: Drive far from us all wrong desires, incline our hearts to keep your law, and guide our feet into the way of peace; that, having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, we may, when night comes, rejoice to give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
