    and forget not all his benefits—

who forgives all your sins

who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

As a father has compassion on his children,     
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; (Psalm 103:11-13)
He makes springs pour water into the ravines;
    it flows between the mountains. 
They give water to all the beasts of the field;
    the wild donkeys quench their thirst. 
The birds of the sky nest by the waters;
    they sing among the branches. 
He waters the mountains from his upper chambers;
    the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work. 
He makes grass grow for the cattle,
    and plants for people to cultivate—
    bringing forth food from the earth 
wine that gladdens human hearts,
    oil to make their faces shine,
    and bread that sustains their hearts. 
The trees of the Lord are well watered,
    the cedars of Lebanon that he planted. 
There the birds make their nests;
    the stork has its home in the junipers. 
The high mountains belong to the wild goats;    
 the crags are a refuge for the hyrax. (Psalm 104:10-18)

    when he heard their cry; 

for their sake he remembered his covenant    
 and out of his great love he relented. (Psalm 106:44-45)
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. (Romans 15:7)

    and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way
    to a city where they could settle. 
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for humankind, 
for he satisfies the thirsty
    and fills the hungry with good things. (Psalm 107:6-9)
He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,    and broke away their chains. (Psalm 107:14)
