Bow down your ear, O Lord, and hear me, *
for I am poor and in misery.
Preserve my life, for I am faithful; *
my God, save your servant who puts his trust in you.
Be merciful unto me, O Lord, *
for I will call daily upon you.
Comfort the soul of your servant, *
for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
For you, Lord, are good and gracious, *
and of great mercy to all those who call upon you.
Give ear, Lord, unto my prayer, *
and attend to the voice of my humble supplications.
In the time of my trouble I will call upon you, *
for you answer me when I call.
Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord, *
nor are there any deeds like yours.
All nations that you have made shall come and worship you, O Lord, *
and shall glorify your Name.
For you are great and do wondrous things; *
indeed, you are God alone.
Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; *
O knit my heart to you, that I may fear your Name.
I will thank you, O Lord my God, with all my heart, *
and will praise your Name for evermore.
The Lord loves the foundation which he has laid upon the holy hills; *
the gates of Zion are dearer to him than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Very excellent things are spoken of you, *
O city of God.
I will consider Egypt and Babylon *
among those who know me.
Behold Philistia also, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; *
each one was born in her.
And of Zion it shall be reported that each one was born in her, *
and the most High shall establish her.
The Lord shall record it when he registers the people, *
that each one was born there.
The singers and the dancers also shall say, *
“All my fresh springs are in you.”
