Deliverance in Battle

For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.

1 May the Lord answer you in a day of trouble; may the name of Jacob's God protect you.
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary and sustain you from Zion.
3 May He remember all your offerings and accept your burnt offering. Selah
4 May He give you what your heart desires and fulfill your whole purpose.
5 Let us shout for joy at your victory and lift the banner in the name of our God. May the Lord fulfill all your requests.
6 Now I know that the Lord gives victory to His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with mighty victories froma His right hand.
7 Some take pride in a chariot, and others in horses, but we take pride in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand firm.
9 Lord, give victory to the king! May Heb answer us on the day that we call.
