For the choir director: A psalm of David. In times of trouble, may the LORD respond to your cry. May the God of Israel a keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. b3
May he remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings. Interlude
May he grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory, flying banners to honor our God. May the LORD answer all your prayers.
Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons, c but we boast in the LORD our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O LORD! Respond to our cry for help.
