O GOD, my heart is ready, my heart is ready : I will sing and give praise with the best member that I have.
2 Awake, thou lute, and harp : I myself will awake right early.
3 I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the people : I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
4 For thy mercy is greater than the heavens : and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
5 Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens : and thy glory above all the earth.
6 That thy beloved may be delivered : let thy right hand save them, and hear thou me.
7 God hath spoken in his holiness : I will rejoice therefore, and divide Sichem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead is mine, and Manasses is mine : Ephraim also is the strength of my head.
9 Judah is my law-giver, Moab is my wash-pot : over Edom will I cast out my shoe, upon Philistia will I triumph.
10 Who will lead me into the strong city : and who will bring me into Edom?
11 Hast not thou forsaken us, O God : and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
12 O help us against the enemy : for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do great acts : and it is he that shall tread down our enemies.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
