Conserva me, Domine
1 Preserve me, O God,*
for in you have I put my trust.
2 O my soul, you have said unto the Lord,*
"You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you."
3 All my delight is upon the saints who are on the earth,*
and upon those who excel in virtue.
4 But those who run after another god*
shall have great trouble.
5 Their drink offerings of blood I will not offer,*
neither make mention of their names with my lips.
6 The Lord himself is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup;*
you shall maintain my lot.
7 The boundaries have fallen for me in pleasant places;*
indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
8 I will thank the Lord for giving me counsel;*
my heart also chastens me in the night season.
9 I have set the Lord always before me;*
he is at my right hand; therefore I shall not fall.
10 Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices.*
My flesh also shall rest in hope.
11 For you shall not leave my soul in the grave,*
neither shall you allow your Holy One to see corruption.
12 You shall show me the path of life; in your presence is the fullness of joy,*
and at your right hand there is pleasure for evermore.
