1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart : before the gods will I sing praise to you.
2 I will bow down towards your holy temple and praise your name, because of your love and faithfulness : for you have glorified your name and your word above all things.
3 In the day that I called to you, you answered me : you put new strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord : for they have heard the words of your mouth.
5 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord : that great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, he watches over the lowly : as for the proud, he regards them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you will preserve me : you will stretch forth your hand against the fury of my enemies; your right hand will save me.
8 The Lord shall make good his purpose for me : your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures for ever; forsake not the work of your hands.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit : as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
Collect for the Day
O God, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright: grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
