In te, Domine, speravi.

In thee, O LORD, have I put my trust; let me never be put | to confusion,

* but rid me and deliver me in thy righteousness; incline thine ear | unto me, and save me.

2 Be thou my stronghold, whereunto I may | alway• resort:

* thou hast promised to help me, for thou art my house of de- | -fence, and my castle.

3 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of | the ungodly,

* out of the hand of the un- | -righteous• and cruel man.

4 For thou, O Lord GOD, art the thing | that I long for:

* thou art my hope, | even from my youth.

5 Through thee have I been holden up ever since | I was born:

* thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb: my praise | shall be •alway• of thee.

6 I am become as it were a monster | unto many,

* but my sure | trust is in thee.

7 O let my mouth be filled | with thy praise,

* that I may sing of thy glory and honour | all the day long.

8 Cast me not away in the | time of age;

* forsake me not when my | strength faileth me.

9 For mine enemies | speak against me;

* and they that lay wait for my soul take their | counsel• together, saying,

10 God hath for- | -saken him;

* persecute him, and take him, for there is none | to deliver him.

11 Go not far from | me, O God;

* my God, | haste thee to help me.

12 Let them be confounded and perish that are a- | -gainst my soul;

* let them be covered with shame and dishonour that | seek to do me evil.

13 As for me, I will patiently a- | -bide alway,

* and will | praise thee more and more.

14 My mouth shall daily speak of thy righteousness | and salvation;

* for I | know no end thereof.

15 I will go forth in the strength of the | Lord GOD,

* and will make mention | of thy •righteous•ness only.

16 Thou, O God, hast taught me from my youth up | until now;

* therefore will I tell | of thy wondrous works.

17 Forsake me not, O God, in mine old age, when I am | gray-headed,

* until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to all them that are | yet for to come.

18 Thy righteousness, O God, is | very high,

* and great things are they that thou hast done: O God, | who is like •unto• thee!

19 O what great troubles and adversities hast thou showed me ! and yet didst thou turn | and refresh me;

* yea, and broughtest me from the deep | of the earth again.

20 Thou hast brought me to | great honour,

* and comforted | me on every side:

21 Therefore will I praise thee, and thy faithfulness, O God, playing upon an instru- | -ment of music:

* unto thee will I sing upon the harp, O thou | Holy One of Israel.

22 My lips will be glad when I sing | unto thee;

* and so will my soul | whom thou hast delivered.

23 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness | all the• day long;

* for they are confounded and brought unto shame that | seek to do me evil.

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.
