A song of David.
1 LORD, I praise you with all my heart.
I sing songs of praise to you before the gods.
2 I bow down toward your holy Temple,
and I praise your name for your love and loyalty.
You are famous,
and doing what you promised will make you even more famous!
3 When I called to you for help,
you answered me and gave me strength.
4 LORD, all the kings on earth will praise you
when they hear what you say.
5 They will sing about what the LORD has done,
because the glory of the LORD is very great.
6 The LORD has the highest place above all others,
but he still cares for the humble.
Even from there, so high above,
he knows what the proud do.
7 If I am in trouble, you keep me alive.
If my enemies are angry, you save me from them.
8 LORD, I know you will do what you have promised.
LORD, your faithful love will last forever.
You are the one who made us, so don’t leave us!
