Inclina, Domine.

Bow down thine ear, O | LORD, and hear me;

* for I am | poor, and in misery.

2 Preserve thou my soul, for | I am holy:

* my God, save thy servant that | putteth• his trust in thee.

3 Be merciful unto | me, O Lord;

* for I will | call •daily• upon thee.

4 Comfort the soul | of thy servant;

* for unto thee, O Lord, do I | lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art | good and gracious,

* and of great mercy unto all | them that call upon thee.

6 Give ear, LORD, | unto• my prayer,

* and ponder the voice | of my •humble• desires.

7 In the time of my trouble I will | call up•on thee;

* for | thou hearest me.

8 Among the gods there is none like unto | thee, O Lord;

* there is not one that can | do as thou doest.

9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship | thee, O Lord;

* and shall | glorify thy Name.

10 For thou art great, and doest | wondrous things:

* thou | art God alone.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and I will walk | in thy truth:

* O knit my heart unto thee, that | I may fear thy Name.

12 I will thank thee, O Lord my God, with | all my heart;

* and will praise thy | Name for evermore.

13 For great is thy | mercy toward me;

* and thou hast delivered my soul | from the •nether•most hell.

14 O God, the proud are | risen• against me;

* and the congregations of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set | thee before their eyes.

15 But thou, O Lord God, art full of com- | -passion• and mercy,

* long-suffering, | plenteous• in •goodness• and truth.

16 O turn thee then unto me, and have | mercy• upon me;

* give thy strength unto thy servant, and help the | son of thine handmaid.

17 Show some token upon me for good; that they who hate me may see it, and | be ashamed,

* because thou, LORD, hast holpen | me, and •comfort•ed me.

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.
