O Lord, thou preservest man and beast


Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens;
and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep:
O Lord, thou preservest man and beast.

How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God!
therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
(Psalms 36: 5-7)
