In te, Domine, speravi
1 In you, O Lord, have I put my trust;*
let me never be put to shame.
2 Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness;*
incline your ear to me and save me.
3 Be my rock and my refuge, where I may always return;*
you have promised to help me, for you are my stronghold and my fortress.
4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the ungodly,*
out of the hand of the unrighteous and the cruel.
5 For you, O Lord God, are the one I long for;*
you are my hope, even from my youth.
6 Through you have I been upheld ever since I was born;*
you took me out of my mother's womb; my praise shall be always of you.
7 I have become a portent to many;*
but you are my refuge and my strength.
8 O let my mouth be filled with your praise,*
that I may sing of your glory all the day long.
9 Cast me not away in the time of old age;*
forsake me not when my strength fails me.
10 For my enemies speak against me, and those who lie in wait for my life take counsel together.*
They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue him and take him, for there is none to deliver him."
11 Go not far from me, O God;*
my God, make haste to help me.
12 Let those who are my adversaries be confounded and perish;*
let those who seek to do me evil be covered with shame and dishonor.
13 As for me, I will always patiently abide,*
and will praise you more and more.
14 My mouth shall speak daily of your righteousness and salvation,*
for I know not the end of them.
15 I will go forth in the strength of the Lord God,*
and will make mention of your righteousness, yours alone.
16 You, O God, have taught me from my youth;*
even to this day I am telling of your wondrous works.
17 Forsake me not, O God, in my old age, when I am gray-headed,*
until I have proclaimed your strength to this generation, and your power to all those who are yet to come.
18 Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens;*
you have done great things. Who is like you, O God?
19 Oh, what great troubles and adversities you have shown me! And yet you have turned and refreshed me;*
indeed, you have brought me again from the depths of the earth.
20 You have brought me to great honor*
and comforted me on every side;
21 Therefore will I praise you and your faithfulness, O God, playing on a stringed instrument;*
to you will I sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.
22 My lips will rejoice when I sing to you,*
and so will my soul, which you have delivered.
23 My tongue also shall speak of your righteousness all the day long,*
for they are confounded and brought to shame who seek to do me evil.
