Psalm 138 - Contemporary English Version 1995

The Lord’s Goodness to the Faithful

1. (By David.) With all my heart I praise you, LORD. In the presence of angels I sing your praises.

2. I worship at your holy temple and praise you for your love and your faithfulness. You were true to your word and made yourself more famous than ever before.

3. When I asked for your help, you answered my prayer and gave me courage.

4. All kings on this earth have heard your promises, LORD, and they will praise you.

5. You are so famous that they will sing about the things you have done.

6. Though you are above us all, you care for humble people, and you keep a close watch on everyone who is proud.

7. I am surrounded by trouble, but you protect me against my angry enemies. With your own powerful arm you keep me safe.

8. You, LORD, will always treat me with kindness. Your love never fails. You have made us what we are. Don't give up on us now!
