1 May the Lord hear you in the day of trouble, ♦
the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 Send you help from his sanctuary ♦
and strengthen you out of Zion;
3 Remember all your offerings ♦
and accept your burnt sacrifice;
4 Grant you your heart’s desire ♦
and fulfil all your mind.
5 May we rejoice in your salvation
and triumph in the name of our God; ♦
may the Lord perform all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord will save his anointed; ♦
he will answer him from his holy heaven,
with the mighty strength of his right hand.
7 Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, ♦
but we will call only on the name of the Lord our God.
8 They are brought down and fallen, ♦
but we are risen and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king ♦
and answer us when we call upon you.
