Be merciful and gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day.
Make me, Your servant, to rejoice, O Lord, for to You do I lift myself up.

Teach me Your way, O Lord, that I may walk and live in Your truth; direct and unite my heart to fear and honor Your name.
I will confess and praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify Your name forevermore.
For great is Your mercy and loving-kindness toward me; and You have delivered me from the depths of Sheol .

O turn to me and have mercy and be gracious to me; grant strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) to Your servant and save the son of Your handmaiden.
Show me a sign of goodwill and favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, help and comfort me.
