1 I will thank you, O Lord, with all my heart:
in the sight of the gods I will sing your praise,
2 and prostrate before your holy temple,
will praise your name for your constant love,
for you have exulted your promise above all.
3 When I called you, you answered;
you gave me strength, you inspired me.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord,
when they shall have heard the words you have uttered;
5 and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
and tell of the Lord’s transcendent glory.
6 For, high though the Lord is, he looks on the lowly,
and strikes down the haughty from far away.
7 Though my way be distressful, yet you preserve me:
you lay your hand on my angry foes,
and your right hand gives me victory.
8 The Lord will accomplish all that which concerns me.
Your kindness, O Lord, endures forever.
O do not abandon the work of your hands.
