Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the Lord :
 and he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up from the pit of roaring waters,
   out of the mire and clay :
 and set my feet upon a rock, and made firm my foothold.
And he has put a new song in my mouth :
 even a song of thanksgiving to our God.
Many shall see it and fear :
 and shall put their trust in the Lord.
Blessed is the man who has made the Lord his hope :
 who has not turned to the proud, or to those who wander in deceit.
O Lord my God, great are the wonderful things which you have done,
   and your thoughts which are towards us :
 there is none to be compared with you;
Were I to declare them and speak of them :
 they are more than I am able to express.
Sacrifice and offering you do not desire :
 but my ears you have marked for obedience;
Burnt-offering and sin-offering you have not required :
 then said I, Lo, I come.
In the scroll of the book it is written of me, that I should do your will :
 O my God, I long to do it, your law delights my heart.
I have declared your righteousness in the great congregation :
 I have not restrained my lips, O Lord, and that you know.
