1 By David.I will give you thanks with my whole heart.Before the angels, I will sing praises to you.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple,and give thanks to your Name for your loving kindness and for your truth;for you have exalted your Name and your Word above all.

3 In the day that I called, you answered me.You encouraged me with strength in my soul.

4 All the kings of the earth will give you thanks, Lord,for they have heard the words of your mouth.

5 Yes, they will sing of the ways of the Lord;for great is the Lord's glory.

6 For though the Lord is high, yet he looks after the lowly;but the proud, he knows from afar.

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.Your right hand will save me.

8 The Lord will fulfill that which concerns me;your loving kindness, Lord, endures forever.Do not forsake the works of your own hands.
