Exaudi, Deus.

Hear my | crying•, O God,

* give | ear unto my prayer.

2 From the ends of the earth will I | call up•on thee,

* when my | heart is in heaviness.

3 O set me up upon the rock that is | higher• than I;

* for thou hast been my hope, and a strong tower for | me against the enemy.

4 I will dwell in thy taber- | -nacle• for ever,

* and my trust shall be under the | cover•ing of thy wings.

5 For thou, O Lord, hast heard | my desires,

* and hast given an heritage unto | those that fear thy Name.

6 Thou shalt grant the King a | long life,

* that his years may endure throughout | all generations.

7 He shall dwell before | God for ever:

* O prepare thy loving mercy and faithfulness, | that they may preserve him.

8 So will I alway sing praise | unto• thy Name,

* that I may | daily• perform my vows.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
