A prayer from the Book of Ruth

Blessed be the LORD, who has not left me this day without a redeemer,
May His name be renowned!
When I could not redeem myself,
When I was barren of life,
When I was cut off and alone,
When I was a foreigner,
When I was despised, empty, and bitter,
I found favor with you.
You took notice of me
And drew me under your wings of protection,
And have supplied me with abundance.
You did not rest until the matter was settled,
But redeemed me in the presence of many witnesses.
Now my future is secure and my heritage is assured.
Now I am yours.
Now You are my God.
Now I am of Your people
And my life may be called "pleasant",
For my Redeemer lives!
