Bow down thine ear, O Lord, and hear me:
for I am poor and in misery.
Be merciful unto me, O Lord:
for I will call daily upon thee.
Comfort the soul of thy servant:
for unto thee do I lift up my soul.
For thou, O Lord, art good and gracious:
and of great mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
Among the gods there is none like unto thee:
there is not one that can do as thou dost.
For thou art great, and dost wondrous things:
thou art God alone.
Teach me thy ways, O Lord, and I will walk in thy truth:
O knit my heart unto thee, that I may fear thy Name.
And I will thank thee, O Lord, my God, with all my heart:
and will praise thy Name for evermore.
