Be g gracious to me and h hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will i my

But know that the  Lord has
Another reading is dealt wonderfully with

The  Lord r hears when I call to Him.

And aa trust in the  Lord.

Many are saying ab Who will show us any good?”
ac Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O  Lord!

More than when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will
Or at the same time

For You alone, O  Lord, make me to ag dwell in safety.
