To thee, O God, I lift up my soul,
All the day long do I wait
in thee, O God, let me not be ashamed;
Let not my enemies
exult over me,
And let none who hope
in thee be ashamed;
But let wicked
traitors be disgraced.
Show me thy ways, O Lord,
Teach me thy way to live.
Lead me in thy truth
and teach me,
For thou art the God who saves me,
And in thee do I hope continually.
Remember thy tender
mercies, O Lord,
And thy loving deeds, for they are eternal.
Do not recall the sins of my youth,
But in thy love remember
Because of thy goodness, O Lord.
Good and upright
is the Lord,
So he teaches sinners the way,
He guides the humble
And teaches the meek his way,
All his rules are loving and true,
To those who follow
his law and commands.
For thy name's sake, O Lord,
Pardon my guilt, for it is great.
Who is the man
that reveres the Lord?
He will teach him the way to choose.
That man shall continue
And his children inherit
He is friendly with those who revere him,
And with his covenant he makes them acquainted.
are ever turned toward the Lord,
For he saves my feet from the net.
Turn to me and be gracious,
For I am alone and afflicted;
Relieve the troubles of my heart,
And deliver me from my distresses;
Look on my affliction
And pardon all my sins.
Consider my enemies, for they are many,
And they hate me with violent hatred;
Oh save my life
and deliver me,
Let me not be ashamed, for I trust thee.
Let innocence and uprightness preserve
For I wait for thee, O Lord.
