The God of all grace.
I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious. § He is gracious to him, and says, “Deliver him from going down to the Pit; I have found a ransom.” § Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed. § Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. § Grace, mercy, and peace from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. § To each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. § As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. § He gives more grace.
Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever.

I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever.
Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the Lord our God, until He has mercy on us. § Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. § My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net. § Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
