Ad te, Domine
1 Unto you will I cry, O Lord my rock; do not be deaf to my prayer;*
lest, if you do not answer, I become like those who go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my humble petitions when I cry unto you,*
when I hold up my hands toward the sanctuary of your holy temple.
3 O cast me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and evildoers,*
who speak as friends to their neighbors, but imagine evil in their hearts.
4 Reward them according to their deeds*
and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.
5 Recompense them according to the work of their hands;*
pay them what they have deserved.
6 For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands;*
therefore he shall break them down and not build them up.
7 Praised be the Lord,*
for he has heard the voice of my humble petitions.
8 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart has trusted in him, and I am helped;*
therefore my heart dances for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
9 The Lord is my strength,*
and he is the sure defense of his Anointed.
10 O save your people, and give your blessing to your inheritance;*
feed them, and lift them up for ever.
