|[A Psalm of David.]|
|I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; |
before the gods I sing thy praise;
|God all-knowing & ever-present. Psalm 138(v137)|
|I bow down toward thy holy temple |
and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.
|On the day I called, thou didst answer me, |
my strength of soul thou didst increase.
|All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, |
for they have heard the words of thy mouth;
|and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD, |
for great is the glory of the LORD.
|For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly; |
but the haughty he knows from afar.
|Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou dost preserve my life; |
thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies,
and thy right hand delivers me.
|The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me; |
thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever.
Do not forsake the work of thy hands.
