Clamavi in toto corde meo
I call with my whole heart *
hear me, O Lord, I will keep thy statutes.
Yea, even unto thee do I call *
help me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.
Early in the morning do I cry unto thee *
for in thy word is my trust.
Mine eyes prevent the night-watches *
that I might be occupied in thy words.
Hear my voice, O Lord, according unto thy loving-kindness *
quicken me, according as thou art wont.
They draw nigh that of malice persecute me *
and are far from thy law.
Be thou nigh at hand, O Lord *
for all thy commandments are true.
As concerning thy testimonies, I have known long since *
that thou hast grounded them for ever.
O consider mine adversity, and deliver me *
for I do not forget thy law.
Avenge thou my cause, and deliver me *
quicken me, according to thy word.
Health is far from the ungodly *
for they regard not thy statutes.
Great is thy mercy, O Lord *
quicken me, as thou art wont.
Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me *
yet do I not swerve from thy testimonies.
It grieveth me when I see the transgressors *
because they keep not thy law.
Consider, O Lord, how I love thy commandments *
O quicken me, according to thy loving-kindness.
Thy word is true from everlasting *
all the judgements of thy righteousness endure for evermore.
Principes persecuti sunt
Princes have persecuted me without a cause *
but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
I am as glad of thy word *
as one that findeth great spoils.
As for lies, I hate and abhor them *
but thy law do I love.
Seven times a day do I praise thee *
because of thy righteous judgements.
Great is the peace that they have who love thy law *
and they are not offended at it.
Lord, I have looked for thy saving health *
and done after thy commandments.
My soul hath kept thy testimonies *
and loved them exceedingly.
I have kept thy commandments and testimonies *
for all my ways are before thee.
Let my complaint come before thee, O Lord *
give me understanding, according to thy word.
Let my supplication come before thee *
deliver me, according to thy word.
My lips shall speak of thy praise *
when thou hast taught me thy statutes.
Yea, my tongue shall sing of thy word *
for all thy commandments are righteous.
Let thine hand help me *
for I have chosen thy commandments.
I have longed for thy saving health, O Lord *
and in thy law is my delight.
O let my soul live, and it shall praise thee *
and thy judgements shall help me.
I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost *
O seek thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments.
