[a]For a (A)brief moment I forsook you,
But with great compassion I will (B)gather you.
“In an [b](C)outburst of anger
I hid My face from you for a moment,
But with everlasting (D)lovingkindness I will (E)have compassion on you,”
Says the Lord your (F)Redeemer.

“For [c]this is like the days of Noah to Me,
When I swore that the waters of Noah
Would (G)not [d]flood the earth again;
So I have sworn that I will (H)not be angry with you
Nor will I rebuke you.
