victory,
And in the name of our God we will p  set up our banners.
May the  Lord q  fulfill all your petitions.

6Now r  I know that the  Lord saves His anointed;
He will s  answer him from His holy heaven
With the
Or mighty deeds of the victory of His right hand
,
u  saving strength of His right hand.
7Some
Or praise chariots, or trust, or are strong through
boast in chariots and some in w  horses,
But x  we
Lit make mention of; or praise the name
will boast in the name of the  Lord, our God.
8They have z  bowed down and fallen,
But we have aa  risen and stood upright.
9
Or O  Lord , save the king; answer us
,
ac  Save, O  Lord;
May the ad  King answer us in the day we call.
