Psalm 4. Cum invocarem.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The First Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. HEAR me when I call, O God of my righteousness: *
    thou hast set me at liberty when I was in trouble; have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.
  2. O ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour, *
    and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after falsehood?
  3. Know this also, that the Lord hath chosen to himself the man that is godly; *
    when I call upon the Lord he will hear me.
  4. Stand in awe, and sin not; *
    commune with your own heart, and in your chamber, and be still.
  5. Offer the sacrifice of righteousness, *
    and put your trust in the Lord.
  6. There be many that say, *
    Who will show us any good?
  7. Lord, lift thou up *
    the light of thy countenance upon us.
  8. Thou hast put gladness in my heart; *
    yea, more than when their corn and wine and oil increase.
  9. I will lay me down in peace, and take my rest; *
    for it is thou, Lord, only, that makest me dwell in safety.
