Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,
whom he has redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.
Some wandered in desert wastes,
finding no way to a city to dwell in;
hungry and thirsty,
their soul fainted within them.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
He led them by a straight way
till they reached a city to dwell in.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
For he satisfies the longing soul,
and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” When we proclaim that we belong to the Lord and declare all He has done for us, we can be sure He hears us and is pleased. The Lord also loves to meet the desires of those who love Him and are not ashamed of Him. This is our testimony. Our witness to others of God’s love and faithfulness will not only bring pleasure to Him but can draw others to the Lord in ways preaching to them never could. If you are one of the Lord’s redeemed, make sure those around you know about it.
