Psalm 28. Ad te, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Fifth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. INTO thee will I cry, O Lord, my strength: *
    think no scorn of me; lest, if thou make as though thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit.
  2. Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry unto thee; *
    when I hold up my hands towards the mercy-seat of thy holy temple.
  3. O pluck me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and wicked doers, *
    which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts.
  4. Reward them according to their deeds, *
    and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.
  5. Recompense them after the work of their hands; *
    pay them that they have deserved.
  6. For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands; *
    therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up.
  7. Praised be the Lord; *
    for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions.
  8. The Lord is my strength, and my shield; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped; *
    therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
  9. The Lord is my strength, *
    and he is the wholesome defence of his anointed.
  10. O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance: *
    feed them, and set them up for ever.
