A prayer for grace, mercy, and protection against our enemies. Unto the end, a psalm for David. To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.  In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.  Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.  Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.  Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.  Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.  The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.  The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.  He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.  All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.  For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.  Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.  His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.  The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.  My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.  Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.  The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.  See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.  Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.  Keep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.  The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.  Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.
