[A prayer of Dauid.]
Bow downe thine eare O God, and heare me: for I am poore and in miserie.
Preserue thou my soule, for I am holy: my God saue thy seruaunt that putteth his trust in thee.
Be mercifull vnto me O God: for I do call dayly vpon thee.
Comfort the soule of thy seruaunt: for vnto thee O Lord do I lift vp my soule.
For thou Lorde art good and gracious: and of great mercy vnto all them that call vpon thee.
Geue eare O God vnto my prayer: and be attentiue vnto the voyce of my humble petitions.
I call vpon thee in the day of my trouble: for thou hearest me.
Among the gods there is none like vnto thee O Lorde: there is not one that can do as thou doest.
All nations whom thou hast made, shall come and worship thee O Lorde: and shall glorifie thy name.
For thou art great and doest wonderous thinges: thou art God alone.
Teache me thy way O God, and I wyll walke in thy trueth: make my heart all one with thyne, that it may feare thy name.
I wyll acknowledge thee O Lorde my God with all my heart: and I wyl glorifie thy name for euer.
For great is thy mercy towarde me: and thou hast deliuered my soule from the lowest [part of] hell.
O God, the proude are rysen against me: a companie of outragious naughtipackes haue sought after my soule, and haue not set thee before their eyes.
But thou O Lorde art a God full of compassion and mercy: long yet thou be angry, plenteous in goodnes and trueth.
Turne thy face vnto me, and haue mercy vpon me: geue thy strength vnto thy seruaunt, and helpe the sonne of thine handmayde.
Shewe some good token of thy fauour towardes me, that they whiche hate me may see it and be ashamed: because thou God hast helped me, and comforted me.
