Psalm 34

Psalm 34

 1 I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his praise.

 2 I live and breathe God;
   if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:

 3 Join me in spreading the news;
   together let’s get the word out.

 4 God met me more than halfway,
   he freed me from my anxious fears.

 5 Look at him; give him your warmest smile.
   Never hide your feelings from him.

 6 When I was desperate, I called out,
   and God got me out of a tight spot.

 7 God‘s angel sets up a circle
   of protection around us while we pray.

 8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
         how good God is.
   Blessed are you who run to him.
