1 Bow down your ear, O Lord, and hear me,*
for I am poor and in misery.
2 Preserve my life, for I am faithful;*
my God, save your servant who puts his trust in you.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord,*
for I will call daily upon you.
4 Comfort the soul of your servant,*
for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For you, Lord, are good and gracious,*
and of great mercy to all those who call upon you.
6 Give ear, Lord, unto my prayer,*
and attend to the voice of my humble supplications.
7 In the time of my trouble I will call upon you,*
for you answer me when I call.
8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord,*
nor are there any deeds like yours.
9 All nations that you have made shall come and worship you, O Lord,*
and shall glorify your Name.
10 For you are great and do wondrous things;*
indeed, you are God alone.
11 Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth;*
O knit my heart to you, that I may fear your Name.
12 I will thank you, O Lord my God, with all my heart,*
and will praise your Name for evermore.
13 For great is your mercy toward me;*
you have delivered my life from the nethermost Pit.
14 O God, the proud have risen up against me,*
and the company of violent men have sought after my life, and have not set you before their eyes.
15 But you, O Lord God, are full of compassion and mercy,*
long-suffering, plenteous in goodness and truth.
16 O turn then unto me, and have mercy upon me;*
give your strength unto your servant, and help the son of your handmaid.
17 Show me some token of your favor, that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed,*
because you, Lord, have been my helper and comforter.
