Psalm 16. Conserva me, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - The Third Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. PRESERVE me, O God; *
    for in thee have I put my trust.
  2. O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, *
    Thou art my God; I have no good like unto thee.
  3. All my delight is upon the saints that are in the earth, *
    and upon such as excel in virtue.
  4. But they that run after another god *
    shall have great trouble.
  5. Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, *
    neither make mention of their names within my lips.
  6. The Lord himself is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup; *
    thou shalt maintain my lot.
  7. The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground; *
    yea, I have a goodly heritage.
  8. I will thank the Lord for giving me warning; *
    my reins also chasten me in the night season.
  9. I have set the Lord alway before me; *
    for he is on my right hand, therefore I shall not fall.
  10. Wherefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: *
    my flesh also shall rest in hope.
  11. For why? thou shalt not leave my soul in hell; *
    neither shalt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption.
  12. Thou shalt show me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulness of joy, *
    and at thy right hand there is pleasure for evermore.
