Page 779 Psalm 138
1 I will give you thanks O Lord with my whole heart:
even before the gods will I sing your praises.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name:
because of your faithfulness and your loving-kindness
for you have made your name and your word supreme
over all things.
3 At a time when I called to you you gave me answer:
and put new strength within my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you O Lord:
for they have heard the words of your mouth;
5 And they shall sing of the ways of the Lord:
that the glory of the Lord is great.
6 For though the Lord is exalted he looks upon the lowly:
but he humbles the proud from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of danger
yet will you preserve my I life:
you will stretch out your hand against the fury of my enemies
and your right hand shall save me.
8 The Lord will complete his purpose for me:
your loving-kindness O Lord endures for ever
do not forsake the work of your own hands.
Glory to the Father...
