1 May the Lord hear you in the day of trouble, ♦︎
the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 Send you help from his sanctuary ♦︎
and strengthen you out of Zion;
3 Remember all your offerings ♦︎
and accept your burnt sacrifice;
4 Grant you your hearts desire ♦︎
and fulfil all your mind.
5 May we rejoice in your salvation
and triumph in the name of our God; ♦︎
may the Lord perform all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord will save his anointed; ♦︎
he will answer him from his holy heaven,
with the mighty strength of his right hand.
7 Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, ♦︎
but we will call only on the name of the Lord our God.
8 They are brought down and fallen, ♦︎
but we are risen and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king ♦︎
and answer us when we call upon you.
1 The king shall rejoice in your strength, O Lord; ♦︎
how greatly shall he rejoice in your salvation!
2 You have given him his hearts desire ♦︎
and have not denied the request of his lips.
3 For you come to meet him with blessings of goodness ♦︎
and set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
4 He asked of you life and you gave it him, ♦︎
length of days, for ever and ever.
5 His honour is great because of your salvation; ♦︎
glory and majesty have you laid upon him.
6 You have granted him everlasting felicity ♦︎
and will make him glad with joy in your presence.
7 For the king puts his trust in the Lord; ♦︎
because of the loving-kindness of the Most High,
he shall not be overthrown.
8 Your hand shall mark down all your enemies; ♦︎
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9 You will make them like a fiery oven
in the time of your wrath; ♦︎
the Lord will swallow them up in his anger
and the fire will consume them.
10 Their fruit you will root out of the land ♦︎
and their seed from among its inhabitants.
11 Because they intend evil against you ♦︎
and devise wicked schemes
which they cannot perform,
12 You will put them to flight ♦︎
when you aim your bow at their faces.
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in your own might; ♦︎
we will make music and sing of your power.
1 The Lord is my shepherd; ♦︎
therefore can I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures ♦︎
and leads me beside still waters.
3 He shall refresh my soul ♦︎
and guide me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.
4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; ♦︎
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You spread a table before me
in the presence of those who trouble me; ♦︎
you have anointed my head with oil
and my cup shall be full.
6 Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life, ♦︎
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
