To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;12
in you I trust,2 O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame,3 but they will be put to shame who are treacherous4 without excuse.
Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths;55
guide me in your truth6 and teach me, for you are God my Savior,7 and my hope is in you8 all day long.
Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love,9 for they are from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth10 and my rebellious ways;11 according to your love12 remember me, for you are good,13 O LORD.
Good and upright14 is the LORD; therefore he instructs15 sinners in his ways.
He guides16 the humble in what is right and teaches them17 his way.
All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful18 for those who keep the demands of his covenant.1911
For the sake of your name,20 O LORD, forgive21 my iniquity,22 though it is great.
Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD?23 He will instruct him in the way24 chosen for him.
He will spend his days in prosperity,25 and his descendants will inherit the land.2614
The LORD confides27 in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known28 to them.
My eyes are ever on the LORD,29 for only he will release my feet from the snare.3016
Turn to me31 and be gracious to me,32 for I am lonely33 and afflicted.
The troubles34 of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.3518
Look upon my affliction36 and my distress37 and take away all my sins.3819
See how my enemies39 have increased and how fiercely they hate me!4020
Guard my life41 and rescue me;42 let me not be put to shame,43 for I take refuge44 in you.
May integrity45 and uprightness46 protect me, because my hope is in you.4722
Redeem Israel,48 O God, from all their troubles!
