I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; *
even before the gods will I sing praises to you.
I will worship toward your holy temple and praise your Name because of your loving-kindness and truth, *
for you have magnified your Name and your word above all things.
When I called upon you, you heard me *
and gave me increase of strength.
All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, *
for they have heard the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, *
that great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord be high, yet he has respect for the lowly; *
as for the proud, he beholds them from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, yet shall you refresh me; *
you shall stretch forth your hand upon the furiousness of my enemies, and your right hand shall save me.
The Lord shall make good his loving-kindness toward me; *
your mercy, O Lord, endures for ever; despise not the works of your own hands.
