1 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear me: for

I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve thou my soul, for I am merciful:

my God, save thou thy servant, that

trusteth in thee.

3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry

upon thee continually.

4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee,

O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art good and merciful, and of

6 Give ear, Lord, unto my prayer, and hearken

and there is none that can do like thy works.

9 All nations whom thou hast made, shall come

and worship before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify

10 For thou art great and doest wondrous things:

thou art God alone.

11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and I will walk in

thy truth: knit mine heart unto thee, that I may fear

thy Name.

12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all

mine heart: yea, I will glorify thy Name forever.

13 For great is thy mercy toward me, and thou

thine handmaid.

17 Show a token of thy goodness toward me, that
