Ad te, Domine, levavi
Unto you, O Lord, will I lift up my soul; my God, I have put my trust in you; *
O let me not be ashamed, neither let my enemies triumph over me.
For all those who hope in you shall not be ashamed, *
but those who deal untruly shall be put to confusion.
Show me your ways, O Lord, *
and teach me your paths.
Lead me forth in your truth, and teach me, *
for you are the God of my salvation; in you has been my hope all the day long.
Call to remembrance, O Lord, your tender mercies, *
and your loving-kindnesses, which have been from of old.
O remember not the sins and offenses of my youth, *
but according to your mercy think on me, O Lord, in your goodness.
Gracious and righteous is the Lord; *
therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
Those who are meek shall he guide in judgment, *
and those who are gentle shall he teach his way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth *
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For your Name’s sake, O Lord, *
forgive my sin, for it is great.
Who is the one who fears the Lord? *
He shall teach him in the way that he shall choose.
He shall dwell at ease, *
and his seed shall inherit the land.
The Lord reveals his secret counsel to those who fear him, *
and he will show them his covenant.
My eyes are ever looking to the Lord, *
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn to me, and have mercy on me, *
for I am desolate and in misery.
The sorrows of my heart are enlarged; *
O bring me out of my troubles.
Look upon my adversity and misery *
and forgive me all my sin.
Consider my enemies, how many they are, *
and how they bear a tyrannous hate against me.
O keep my soul and deliver me; *
let me not be ashamed, for I have put my trust in you.
Let integrity and righteous dealing preserve me, *
for my hope has been in you.
Deliver Israel, O God, *
out of all his troubles.
