Paratum cor meum
1 O God, my heart is fixed, my heart is firmly fixed;*
I will sing and give praise with the best that I have.
2 Awake, my soul; awake, lute and harp;*
I myself will awaken the dawn.
3 I will give thanks unto you, O Lord, among the peoples,*
and I will sing praises unto you among the nations,
4 For the greatness of your mercy reaches to the heavens,*
and your faithfulness to the clouds.
5 Exalt yourself, O God, above the heavens;*
let your glory be over all the earth.
6 That your beloved may be delivered,*
save me by your right hand, and answer me.
7 God has spoken in his holiness:*
"I will rejoice and divide Shechem, and parcel out the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine;*
Ephraim also is the helmet for my head; Judah is my scepter.
9 Moab is my wash-pot; over Edom will I cast my shoe;*
over Philistia will I triumph."
10 Who will lead me into the strong city,*
and who will bring me into Edom?
11 Have you not forsaken us, O God?*
And will you not, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12 O help us against the enemy,*
for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do great acts,*
for it is he who shall tread down our enemies.
