1 Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, ♦︎
for I am poor and in misery.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am faithful; ♦︎
save your servant, for I put my trust in you.
3 Be merciful to me, O Lord, for you are my God; ♦︎
I call upon you all the day long.
4 Gladden the soul of your servant, ♦︎
for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5 For you, Lord, are good and forgiving, ♦︎
abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer ♦︎
and listen to the voice of my supplication.
7 In the day of my distress I will call upon you, ♦︎
for you will answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord, ♦︎
nor any works like yours.
9 All nations you have made shall come and worship you, O Lord, ♦︎
and shall glorify your name.
