1 Lord, hear my prayer,i
listen to my cry for mercy;j
come to my relief.
for no one living is righteousm before you.
he crushes me to the ground;
he makes me dwell in the darknessn
like those long dead.o
my heart within me is dismayed.p
5 I rememberq the days of long ago;
I meditater on all your works
and consider what your hands have done.
6 I spread out my handss to you;
I thirst for you like a parched land.a
7 Answer me quickly,t Lord;
my spirit fails.u
Do not hide your facev from me
or I will be like those who go down to the pit.
8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,w
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the wayx I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.y
for I hide myself in you.
10 Teach meb to do your will,
for you are my God;c
may your good Spirit
in your righteousness,h bring me out of trouble.
12 In your unfailing love, silence my enemies;i
destroy all my foes,j
for I am your servant.k
