Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift1 up my soul.
You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love2 to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry3 for mercy.
In the day of my trouble4 I will call5 to you, for you will answer6 me.
Among the gods7 there is none like you,8 O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
All the nations you have made will come9 and worship10 before you, O Lord; they will bring glory11 to your name.
For you are great12 and do marvelous deeds;13 you alone14 are God.
Teach me your way,15 O LORD, and I will walk in your truth;16 give me an undivided17 heart, that I may fear18 your name.
I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart;19 I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me20 from the depths of the grave.a2114
The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.22
