O Lord, give ear unto my prayer;
and ponder the Voice of my humble desires.
In the time of my trouble I will call upon thee,
for thou hearest me.
Among the Gods there is none like thee, O Lord;
there is not one that can doe as thou doest;
All nations, whom thou hast made,
shall come and worship thee, O Lord;
And shall glorifie thy name.
For thou art great, and dost wondrous things;
thou thou art God alone.
