my prayer

To thee, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in thee I trust,
let me not be put to shame;
let not my enemies exult over me.

Yea, let none that wait for thee be put to shame...

Let not those who hope in thee be put to shame through me,
O Lord GOD of hosts;
let not those who seek thee be brought to dishonor through me,
O God of Israel.

I will praise the name of God with a song;
I will magnify him with thanksgiving...
Let the oppressed see it and be glad;
you who seek God, let your hearts revive.

For the LORD hears the needy...

(from Psalms 25 and 69)
