Ad te, Domine, levavi
Unto thee, O Lord, will I lift up my soul; my God, I have put my trust in thee *
O let me not be confounded, neither let mine enemies triumph over me.
For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed *
but such as transgress without a cause shall be put to confusion.
Shew me thy ways, O Lord *
and teach me thy paths.
Lead me forth in thy truth, and learn me *
for thou art the God of my salvation; in thee hath been my hope all the day long.
Call to remembrance, O Lord, thy tender mercies *
and thy loving-kindnesses, which have been ever of old.
O remember not the sins and offences of my youth *
but according to thy mercy think thou upon me, O Lord, for thy goodness.
Gracious and righteous is the Lord *
therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
Them that are meek shall he guide in judgement *
and such as are gentle, them shall he learn his way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth *
unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For thy Name’s sake, O Lord *
be merciful unto my sin, for it is great.
What man is he that feareth the Lord *
him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
His soul shall dwell at ease *
and his seed shall inherit the land.
The secret of the Lord is among them that fear him *
and he will shew them his covenant.
Mine eyes are ever looking unto the Lord *
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me *
for I am desolate and in misery.
The sorrows of my heart are enlarged *
O bring thou me out of my troubles.
Look upon my adversity and misery *
and forgive me all my sin.
Consider mine enemies, how many they are *
and they bear a tyrannous hate against me.
O keep my soul, and deliver me *
let me not be confounded, for I have put my trust in thee.
Let perfectness and righteous dealing wait upon me *
for my hope hath been in thee.
Deliver Israel, O God *
out of all his troubles.
