Lyrics:

Antiphon: ||: Forever will I sing the goodness of the Lord,
forever will I sing, sing His praises. :||

1. I have found my servant David
with My holy oil anointed.
My hands shall be with him always,
my arm make him strong. Antiphon

2. My kindness shall always be with him,
through My name he shall be exalted.
He shall always call me his Father,
for I am his Savior. Antiphon
