Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.
My "one word" for 2011 is hope.
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.
(I think this verse is extra-important,
because it's repeated almost identically twice in chapter 42)
