To the director: A song of David.
1 May the LORD answer you in times of trouble.
May the God of Jacob protect you.
2 May he send you help from his Holy Place.
May he support you from Zion.
3 May he remember all the gifts you have offered.
May he accept all your sacrifices.
4 May he give you what you really want.
May he make all your plans successful.
5 We will celebrate when he helps you.
We will praise the name of God.
May the LORD give you everything you ask for.
6 Now I know the LORD helps his chosen king.
From his holy heaven he answered.
With his great power he saved him.
7 Some give the credit for victory to their chariots and soldiers,
but we honor the LORD our God.
8 They fall in battle, totally defeated,
but we survive and stand strong!
9 LORD, save the king!
Answer us when we call to you for help.
