"May my cry come before you, O Lord
Give me understanding according to your word.
May my supplication come before you
deliver me according to your promise.
May my lips overflow with praise,
for you teach me your decrees,
May my tongue sing of your word,
for al your commands are righteous.
May your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts.
I long for you salvation, o Lord,
and your law is my delight.
Let me live that I may praise you,
and may your laws sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep.
Seek your servant,
for I have not forgotten your commands."
