1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness; ♦
you set me at liberty when I was in trouble;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will you nobles dishonour my glory; ♦
how long will you love vain things and seek after falsehood?
3 But know that the Lord has shown me his marvellous kindness; ♦
when I call upon the Lord, he will hear me.
4 Stand in awe, and sin not; ♦
commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness ♦
and put your trust in the Lord.
6 There are many that say, ‘Who will show us any good?’ ♦
Lord, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart, ♦
more than when their corn and wine and oil increase.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, ♦
for it is you Lord, only, who make me dwell in safety.
