|[A Psalm of David.]|
|To thee, O LORD, I lift up my soul.||Psalm of Praise. Psalm 25(v24)|
|O my God, in thee I trust, |
let me not be put to shame;
let not my enemies exult over me.
|Yea, let none that wait for thee be put to shame; |
let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
|Make me to know thy ways, O LORD; |
teach me thy paths.
|Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; |
for thee I wait all the day long.
|Be mindful of thy mercy, O LORD, |
and of thy steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
|Remember not the sins of my youth, or my transgressions; |
according to thy steadfast love remember me, for thy goodness' sake, O LORD!
|Good and upright is the LORD; |
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
|He leads the humble in what is right, |
and teaches the humble his way.
|All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, |
for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
|For thy name's sake, O LORD, |
pardon my guilt, for it is great.
|Who is the man that fears the LORD? |
Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
|He himself shall abide in prosperity, |
and his children shall possess the land.
|The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, |
and he makes known to them his covenant.
|My eyes are ever toward the LORD,|
for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
|Turn thou to me, and be gracious to me; |
for I am lonely and afflicted.
|Relieve the troubles of my heart, |
and bring me out of my distresses.
|Consider my affliction and my trouble, |
and forgive all my sins.
|Consider how many are my foes, |
and with what violent hatred they hate me.
|Oh guard my life, and deliver me; |
let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in thee.
|May integrity and uprightness preserve me, |
for I wait for thee.
|Redeem Israel, O God, |
out of all his troubles.
