Ad te, Domine, levavi
1 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.
2 For all those who hope in you shall not be ashamed,*
but those who deal untruly shall be put to confusion.
3 Show me your ways, O Lord,*
and teach me your paths.
4 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.
5 Call to remembrance, O Lord, your tender mercies,*
and your loving-kindnesses, which have been from of old.
6 O remember not the sins and offenses of my youth,*
but according to your mercy think on me, O LORD, in your goodness.
7 Gracious and righteous is the Lord;*
therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
8 Those who are meek shall he guide in judgment,*
and those who are gentle shall he teach his way.
9 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth*
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
10 For your Name's sake, O Lord,*
forgive my sin, for it is great.
11 Who is the one who fears the Lord?*
He shall teach him in the way that he shall choose.
12 He shall dwell at ease,*
and his seed shall inherit the land.
13 The Lord reveals his secret counsel to those who fear him,*
and he will show them his covenant.
14 My eyes are ever looking to the Lord,*
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
15 Turn to me, and have mercy on me,*
for I am desolate and in misery.
16 The sorrows of my heart are enlarged;*
O bring me out of my troubles.
17 Look upon my adversity and misery*
and forgive me all my sin.
18 Consider my enemies, how many they are,*
and how they bear a tyrannous hate against me.
19 O keep my soul and deliver me;*
Let me not be ashamed, for I have put my trust in you.
20 Let integrity and righteous dealing preserve me,*
for my hope has been in you.
21 Deliver Israel, O God,*
out of all his troubles.
