19 Open the gates of justice!
    I will enter and tell the Lord
    how thankful I am.

20 Here is the gate of the Lord!
    Everyone who does right
    may enter this gate.

21 I praise the Lord
    for answering my prayers
    and saving me.
22 The stone that the builders
    tossed aside
    has now become
    the most important stone.

23 The Lord has done this,
    and it is amazing to us.
24 This day belongs to the Lord!
    Let’s celebrate
    and be glad today.
25 We’ll ask the Lord to save us!
    We’ll sincerely ask the Lord
    to let us win.

26 God bless the one who comes
    in the name of the Lord!
    We praise you from here
    in the house of the Lord.

27 The Lord is our God,
    and he has given us light!
Start the celebration!
    March with palm branches
    all the way to the altar.[a]

28 The Lord is my God!
    I will praise him and tell him
    how thankful I am.

29 Tell the Lord
    how thankful you are,
    because he is kind
    and always merciful.
