Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness :
when I was hard-pressed you set me free;
be gracious to me now and hear my prayer.
Sons of men, how long will you turn my glory to my shame :
how long will you love what is worthless and seek after lies?
Know that the Lord has shown me his wonderful kindness :
when I call to the Lord he will hear me.
Tremble, and do no sin :
commune with your own heart upon your bed and be still.
Offer the sacrifices that are right :
and put your trust in the Lord.
There are many who say Who will show us any good? :
the light of your countenance, O Lord, has gone from us.
Yet you have given my heart more gladness :
that they have when their corn, wine and oil increase.
In peace I will lie down and sleep :
for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
