O Lord, do not rebuke me in your wrath, nor chasten me in your hot displeasure! I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. In you, O Lord, do I hope; you will hear, O Lord my God.
Vindicate me, Lord my God, according to your righteousness; and let not my enemies rejoice over me. Rescue me from their destruction, my precious life from the lions. Say to my soul: “I am your salvation.”
You, O Lord, are my hiding place. You shall preserve me from trouble. You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.
When I kept silent, my bones grew old through my groaning all the day long. I acknowledged my sin to you. I have not hidden my transgression. And you forgave the discord of my sin.
I said in my haste, ‘I am cut off from before your eyes!’ Nevertheless you heard the voice of my supplications when I cried out to you. Blessed be the Lord, for he has shown me his marvelous kindness.
Into your hand I commit my spirit. I will be glad and rejoice in your mercy, for you have considered my trouble; you have known my soul in adversities.
In you, O Lord, I put my trust; let me never be ashamed. Bow down your ear to me, deliver me speedily; be my Rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save me.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! For His mercy endures forever.
O Good One, you know my poverty and foolishness, my blindness and uselessness, but my soul’s suffering is also before you. Heal me from every hidden wound. Keep me from every impulse unpleasing in your sight and hurtful to my neighbor.
