A psalm of David.

1 Lord, I will praise you with all my heart. In front of those who think they are gods I will sing praise to you.
2 I will bow down facing your holy temple. I will praise your name, because you are loving and faithful. You have honored your name and your word more than anything else.
3 When I called out to you, you answered me. You made me strong and brave.
4 Lord, may all of the kings on earth praise you when they hear about what you have promised.
5 Lord, may they sing about what you have done, because your glory is great.
6 The LORD is in heaven. But he watches over those who are free of pride. He knows those who are proud and stays far away from them.
7 Trouble is all around me, but you keep me alive. You reach out your hand to put a stop to the anger of my enemies. With your powerful right hand you save me.
8 Lord, you will do everything you have planned for me. Lord, your faithful love continues forever. You have done so much for us. Don't stop now.
