1 [A Psalm of David.] I will praise you with my whole heart. Before the gods I will sing praise to you.
2 I will worship toward your holy temple and praise your name for your loving-kindness and for your truth, for you have magnified your word above all your name.
3 In the day when I cried you answered me and strengthened me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O LORD, when they hear the words of your mouth.
5 Indeed, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Though the LORD is high, yet he has respect to the lowly. But the proud he knows afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you will revive me. You will stretch forth your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand will save me.
8 The LORD will perfect that which concerns me. Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the works your own hands.
