1I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before 2the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down 3toward your 4holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word.
On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased.
5All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O LORD, for they have heard the words of your mouth,
and they shall sing of 6the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD.
7For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar.
8Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you 9preserve my life; you 10stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your 11right hand delivers me.
The LORD will 12fulfill his purpose for me; 13your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake 14the work of your hands.
