  • Psalm 22:1-5

    Psalm 22

    For the music leader. According to the “Doe of Dawn.” A psalm of David.

    22 My God! My God,
        why have you left me all alone?
        Why are you so far from saving me—
            so far from my anguished groans?
    My God, I cry out during the day,
        but you don’t answer;
        even at nighttime I don’t stop.
    You are the holy one, enthroned.
    You are Israel’s praise.
    Our ancestors trusted you—
        they trusted you and you rescued them;
        they cried out to you and they were saved;
        they trusted you and they weren’t ashamed.

  • Psalm 22:25-31

    25 I offer praise in the great congregation
        because of you;
        I will fulfill my promises
        in the presence of those who honor God.
    26 Let all those who are suffering eat and be full!
        Let all who seek the Lord praise him!
            I pray your hearts live forever!
    27 Every part of the earth
        will remember and come back to the Lord;
        every family among all the nations will worship you.
    28 Because the right to rule belongs to the Lord,
        he rules all nations.
    29 Indeed, all the earth’s powerful
        will worship him;
        all who are descending to the dust
        will kneel before him;
        my being also lives for him.
    30 Future descendants will serve him;
        generations to come will be told about my Lord.
    31 They will proclaim God’s righteousness
            to those not yet born,
            telling them what God has done.
