Keep me safe, O God: for in you I have put my faith.
- O my soul, you have said to the Lord, You are my Lord: I have no good but you.
- As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the noble in whom is all my delight.
- Their sorrows will be increased who go after another god: I will not take drink offerings from their hands, or take their names on my lips.
- The Lord is my heritage and the wine of my cup;
you are the supporter of my right.
- Fair are the places marked out for me;
I have a noble heritage.
- I will give praise to the Lord who has been my guide;
knowledge comes to me from my thoughts in the night.
- I have put the Lord before me at all times;
because he is at my right hand, I will not be moved.
- Because of this my heart is glad, and my glory is full of joy: while my flesh takes its rest in hope.
- For you will not let my soul be prisoned in the underworld;
you will not let your loved one see the place of death.
- You will make clear to me the way of life;
where you are joy is complete;
in your right hand there are pleasures for ever and ever.
