I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; before the gods to you I sing.
I bow low toward your holy temple; I praise your name for your fidelity and love.
For you have exalted over all your name and your promise.
When I cried out, you answered; you strengthened my spirit.

All the kings of earth will praise you, Lord, when they hear the words of your mouth.
They will sing of the ways of the Lord: “How great is the glory of the Lord!”
The Lord is on high, but cares for the lowly and knows the proud from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of dangers, you guard my life when my enemies rage.
You stretch out your hand; your right hand saves me.
The Lord is with me to the end. Lord, your love endures forever.
Never forsake the work of your hands!

Psalm 138
