To you, O Lord, I will lift up my soul;
in you alone I trust, O sovereign Lord.
Do not let me be put to shame
or let my enemies triumph over me,
for my hope is in you.
Show me your ways, O Lord, in this I ask,
to guide me in your truth; teach me your paths.
You are God my Savior, Jesus,
name above all names; it is you alone
who commands my soul.
Remember, Lord, your love and your mercy,
remember not the sins of my youth.
Remember still your plan from eternity,
to redeem a holy people for yourself:
most merciful, upright and true is the Lord!
To the humble in heart, your covenant confide;
teach me, O Lord, your ways in doing right.
Who, then, is the man fearing you?
His is the confidence of the sons of God
living long in the land.
My eyes are ever upon you;
be gracious and turn to me.
See my fierce enemies surround,
so guard my life and rescue me!
