Original text and translations
In you, O Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
Oh turn your ear to me, come quickly to my aid;
I trust in you, oh Lord you are my God.
redeem me, Lord the God of truth.
Oh let your face shine on me Lord.
Oh save me in your unfailing love.
Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak; my soul and my body grieve.
My life is consumed by anguish
But praise be to the Lord, my God,
for he has shown his love to me.
Be strong, take heart all that hope in the Lord.
Rejoice, be glad.
His mercy has no end.
Hear, O Lord, and be merciful
that my heart may sing to you.
O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks for ever.
