The Psalms

A Prayer for God's Continued Mercy
A Prayer of David.

1  Bow down thine ear, O LORD,
hear me: for I am poor and needy.
2  Preserve my soul; for I am holy:
O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
3  Be merciful unto me, O Lord:
for I cry unto thee daily.
4  Rejoice the soul of thy servant:
for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5  For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
6  Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer;
and attend to the voice of my supplications.
7  In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee:
for thou wilt answer me.
8  Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord;
neither are there any works like unto thy works.
9  All nations whom thou hast made
shall come and worship before thee, O Lord;
and shall glorify thy name. Rev. 15.4
10  For thou art great, and doest wondrous things:
thou art God alone.
11  Teach me thy way, O LORD;
I will walk in thy truth:
unite my heart to fear thy name.
12  I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart:
and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
13  For great is thy mercy toward me:
and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
14  O God, the proud are risen against me,
and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul;
and have 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 truth.
16  O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me;
give thy strength unto thy servant,
and save the son of thine handmaid.
17  Show me a token for good;
that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed:
because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.
