(137-1) <For David himself.> I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: for thou hast heard the words of my mouth. I will sing praise to thee in the sight of the angels:
(137-2) I will worship towards thy holy temple, and I will give glory to thy name. For thy mercy, and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy holy name above all.
(137-3) In what day soever I shall call upon thee, hear me: thou shalt multiply strength in my soul.
(137-4) May all the kings of the earth give glory to thee: for they have heard all the words of thy mouth.
(137-5) And let them sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.
(137-6) For the Lord is high, and looketh on the low: and the high he knoweth afar off.
(137-7) If I shall walk in the midst of tribulation, thou wilt quicken me: and thou hast stretched forth thy hand against the wrath of my enemies: and thy right hand hath saved me.
(137-8) The Lord will repay for me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: O despise not the works of thy hands.
