I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord, with my whole heart : I will speak of all thy marvellous works.
2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee : yea, my songs will I make of thy Name, O thou most Highest.
3 While mine enemies are driven back : they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause : thou art set in the throne that judgest right.
5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, and destroyed the ungodly : thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end : even as the cities which thou hast destroyed, their memorial is perished with them.
7 But the Lord shall endure for ever : he hath also prepared his seat for judgement.
8 For he shall judge the world in righteousness : and minister true judgement unto the people.
9 The Lord also will be a defence for the oppressed : even a refuge in due time of trouble.
10 And they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee : for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.
11 O praise the Lord which dwelleth in Sion : shew the people of his doings.
12 For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them : and forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.
13 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; consider the trouble which I suffer of them that hate me : thou that liftest me up from the gates of death.
14 That I may shew all thy praises within the ports of the daughter of Sion : I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made : in the same net which they hid privily, is their foot taken.
16 The Lord is known to execute judgement : the ungodly is trapped in the work of his own hands.
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell : and all the people that forget God.
18 For the poor shall not alway be forgotten : the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever.
19 Up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand : let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20 Put them in fear, O Lord : that the heathen may know themselves to be but men.
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.
