Great Is Your Steadfast Love

A Prayer of David.

1Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,

for I am poor and needy.

2Preserve my life, for I am godly;

save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.

3Be gracious to me, O Lord,

for to you do I cry all the day.

4Gladden the soul of your servant,

for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,

abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

6Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;

listen to my plea for grace.

7In the day of my trouble I call upon you,

for you answer me.

8There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,

nor are there any works like yours.

9All the nations you have made shall come

and worship before you, O Lord,

and shall glorify your name.

10For you are great and do wondrous things;

you alone are God.

11Teach me your way, O Lord,

that I may walk in your truth;

unite my heart to fear your name.

12I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,

and I will glorify your name forever.

13For great is your steadfast love toward me;

you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14O God, insolent men have risen up against me;

a band of ruthless men seeks my life,

and they do not set you before them.

15But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

16Turn to me and be gracious to me;

give your strength to your servant,

and save the son of your maidservant.

17Show me a sign of your favor,

that those who hate me may see and be put to shame

because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
