To the chief Musician, a psalm of David.
1 JEHOVAH hear thee in the day
of sore calamity,
the name of the God of Jacob
defend thee mightily.
2 Send thee help from his holy place:
from Sion strengthen thee.
3 Mind all thy gifts, thy sacrifice
accepted let it be. Selah.
4 Grant thee according to thy heart,
all thy counsel fulfill.
5 In thy perfect salvation
with singing joy we will:
And we in the name of our God
our banners will erect:
when as all thy petitions
Jehovah shall effect.
6 Now I know, that Jehovah doth
save his anointed-Dear:
with saving strength of his right hand
from his pure heav’n will hear.
7 In chariots some their confidence,
and some in horses set:
but we the name of Jehovah
our God will not forget.
8 They are brought down and fall’n: but we,
rise and stand stedfastly.
9 Save Lord, and let the King us hear
when as to him we cry.
