Israel’s Praise to the Lord

12 At that time,[a] you will say:
“I will praise you, Lord,
    for although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away,
    and you have comforted me.
“Look! God—yes God—is[b] my salvation;
    I will trust, and not be afraid.
For the Lord[c] is my strength and my song,[d]
    and he has become my salvation.”

You will draw water joyfully from the wells of salvation. And you will say at that time:[e]

“Give thanks to the Lord;
    call on his name.
Make known his actions
    among the nations.
        Proclaim that his name is exalted.
“Sing praises to the Lord,[f]
    because he has acted gloriously,
        being made[g] known in all the world.
Shout aloud, and sing for joy,
    you who live in Zion,
because great in your midst
    is the Holy One of Israel.”
