you forgive them all. (Ps. 65:3)

And lead us not into temptation...

those who live in your holy courts.
What festivities await us
inside your holy Temple. (Ps. 65:4)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
The godly will rejoice in the Lord
and find shelter in him.
And those who do what is right
will praise him. (Ps. 64:10)
