1 In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
2 Incline your ear to me;
make haste to deliver me.
3 Be my strong rock, a fortress to save me,
for you are my rock and my stronghold;
guide me, and lead me for your names sake.
4 Take me out of the net
that they have laid secretly for me,
for you are my strength.
5 Into your hands I commend my spirit,
for you have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
19 How abundant is your goodness, O Lord,
which you have laid up for those who fear you;
which you have prepared in the sight of all
for those who put their trust in you.
20 You hide them in the shelter of your presence
from those who slander them;
you keep them safe in your refuge from the strife of tongues.
21 Blessed be the Lord!
For he has shown me his steadfast love
when I was as a city besieged.
22 I had said in my alarm,
I have been cut off from the sight of your eyes.
Nevertheless, you heard the voice of my prayer
when I cried out to you.
23 Love the Lord, all you his servants;
for the Lord protects the faithful,
but repays to the full the proud.
24 Be strong and let your heart take courage,
all you who wait in hope for the Lord.
