1 Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am poor and in misery.
2 Preserve my soul, for I am faithful;
save your servant, for I put my trust in you.
3 Be merciful to me, O Lord, for you are my God;
I call upon you all the day long.
4 Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5 For you, Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer
and listen to the voice of my supplication.
7 In the day of my distress I will call upon you,
for you will answer me.
8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord,
nor any works like yours.
9 All nations you have made shall come and worship you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
10 For you are great and do wonderful things;
you alone are God.
16 Turn to me and have mercy upon me;
give your strength to your servant
and save the child of your handmaid.
17 Show me a token of your favour,
that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed;
because you, O Lord, have helped and comforted me.
