[A prayer of Dauid.]
1
Bow downe thine eare, O Lord, heare me: for I am poore & needy.
2
Preserue my soule, for I am holy: O thou my God, saue thy seruant, that trusteth in thee.
3
Be merciful vnto me, O Lord: for I cry vnto thee daily.
4
Reioyce the soule of thy seruant: for vnto thee (O Lord) doe I lift vp my soule.
5
For thou Lord art good, and ready to forgiue: and plenteous in mercie vnto all them that call vpon thee.
6
Giue eare O Lord, vnto my prayer: and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7
In the day of my trouble I will call vpon thee: for thou wilt answere mee.
8
Among the gods there is none like vnto thee (O Lord:) neither are there any workes like vnto thy workes.
9
All nations whom thou hast made, shall come and worship before thee, O Lord: and shall glorifie thy Name.
10
For thou art great, and doest wonderous things: thou art God alone.
11
Teach me thy way, O Lord, I will walke in thy trueth: vnite my heart to feare thy Name.
12
I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I wil glorifie thy Name for euermore.
13
For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast deliuered my soule from the lowest hell.
14
O God, the proud are risen against mee, and the assemblies of violent men haue sought after my soule: and haue not set thee before them.
15
But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious: long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and trueth.
16
O turne vnto me, and haue mercie vpon me, giue thy strength vnto thy seruant: and saue the sonne of thine handmaid.
17
Shew me a token for good, that they which hate me may see it, and bee ashamed: because thou, Lord, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
