¶ O GOD, my heart is ready, my heart is ready;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2
Awake, my harp;
awake, psaltery and harp;
I myself will awake early.
3
I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people;
and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4
For thy mercy is great to the heavens;
and thy truth reaches to the heaven of heavens.
5
Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth,
6
That thy beloved may be delivered;
save me with thy right hand, and answer me.
7
God has spoken in his holiness: I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8
Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, Ephraim also is the strength of my head;
Judah is my king;
9
Moab is my washpot;
Edom will loosen my shoe;
over Philistia will I triumph.
10
Who will bring me into the strong city?
Who will lead me into Edom?
11
Wilt not thou, O God, who cast us off?
and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12
Give us strength against our enemies;
for vain is the help of man.
13
Through God we shall do valiantly;
for he it is who shall tread down our enemies.
