Hear my words, O Lord; listen to my sighing.

Hear my cry for help, my King, my God!

To you I pray, O Lord; at dawn you will her my cry;

At dawn I will plead before you and wait.

All who take refuge in you will be glad and forever shout for joy.

Protect them that you may be the joy of those who love your name.

For you, Lord, bless the just; you surround them with favor like a shield.

Psalm 5:1-5, 12-13
