To you, O Lord, I offer my prayer;
in you, my God, I trust. Save me from the shame of defeat; don't let my enemies gloat over me!
Defeat does not come to those who trust in you, but to those who are quick to rebel against you.
Teach me your ways, O Lord; make them known to me.
Teach me to live according to your truth, for you are my God, who saves me. I always trust in you.
Remember, O Lord, your kindness and constant love which you have shown from long ago.
Forgive the sins and errors of my youth. In your constant love and goodness, remember me, Lord!
Because the Lord is righteous and good, he teaches sinners the path they should follow.
He leads the humble in the right way and teaches them his will.
