Tried but Trusting

1A prayer of Dauid. Bow downe thine eare O God, and heare me: for I am poore and in miserie.

2Preserue thou my soule, for I am holy: my God saue thy seruaunt that putteth his trust in thee.

3Be mercifull vnto me O God: for I do call dayly vpon thee.

4Comfort the soule of thy seruaunt: for vnto thee O Lord do I lift vp my soule.

5For thou Lorde art good and gracious: and of great mercy vnto all them that call vpon thee.

6Geue eare O God vnto my prayer: and be attentiue vnto the voyce of my humble petitions.

7I call vpon thee in the day of my trouble: for thou hearest me.

8Among the gods there is none like vnto thee O Lorde: there is not one that can do as thou doest.

9All nations whom thou hast made, shall come and worship thee O Lorde: and shall glorifie thy name.

10For thou art great and doest wonderous thinges: thou art God alone.

11Teache me thy way O God, and I wyll walke in thy trueth: make my heart all one with thyne, that it may feare thy name.

12I wyll acknowledge thee O Lorde my God with all my heart: and I wyl glorifie thy name for euer.

13For great is thy mercy towarde me: and thou hast deliuered my soule from the lowest part of hell.

14O God, the proude are rysen against me: a companie of outragious naughtipackes haue sought after my soule, and haue not set thee before their eyes.

15But thou O Lorde art a God full of compassion and mercy: long yet thou be angry, plenteous in goodnes and trueth.

16Turne thy face vnto me, and haue mercy vpon me: geue thy strength vnto thy seruaunt, and helpe the sonne of thine handmayde.

17Shewe some good token of thy fauour towardes me, that they whiche hate me may see it and be ashamed: because thou God hast helped me, and comforted me.
