Great Is Your Steadfast Love
a A Prayer of David.1 b Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am c poor and needy.
2 Preserve my life, for I am d godly;
save your servant, who e trusts in you—you are my God.
3 f Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all the day.
4 Gladden the soul of your servant,
for g to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For you, O Lord, are good and h forgiving,
i abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6 j Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
listen to my plea for grace.
7 In k the day of my trouble I call upon you,
l for you answer me.
8 There is m none like you among the gods, O Lord,
n nor are there any works like yours.
9 o All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
10 For p you are great and q do wondrous things;
r you alone are God.
11 s Teach me your way, O Lord,
that I may t walk in your truth;
u unite my heart to fear your name.
12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever.
13 v For great is your steadfast love toward me;
you have w delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
14 O God, insolent men have x risen up against me;
a band of ruthless men seeks my life,
and they do not set you before them.
15 But you, O Lord, are a God y merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
16 z Turn to me and be gracious to me;
give your strength to aa your servant,
and save ab the son of your maidservant.
17 ac Show me a sign of your ad favor,
that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
