Psalm 102. Domine, exaudi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twentieth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. HEAR my prayer, O Lord, *
    and let my crying come unto thee.
  2. Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble; *
    incline thine ear unto me when I call; O hear me, and that right soon.
  3. For my days are consumed away like smoke, *
    and my bones are burnt up as it were a firebrand.
  4. My heart is smitten down, and withered like grass; *
    so that I forget to eat my bread.
  5. For the voice of my groaning, *
    my bones will scarce cleave to my flesh.
  6. I am become like a pelican in the wilderness, *
    and like an owl that is in the desert.
  7. I have watched, and am even as it were a sparrow, *
    that sitteth alone upon the housetop.
  8. Mine enemies revile me all the day long; *
    and they that are mad upon me are sworn together against me.
  9. For I have eaten ashes as it were bread, *
    and mingled my drink with weeping;
  10. And that, because of thine indignation and wrath; *
    for thou hast taken me up, and cast me down.
  11. My days are gone like a shadow, *
    and I am withered like grass.
  12. But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for ever, *
    and thy remembrance throughout all generations.
  13. Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Sion; *
    for it is time that thou have mercy upon her, yea, the time is come.
  14. And why? thy servants think upon her stones, *
    and it pitieth them to see her in the dust.
  15. The nations shall fear thy Name, O Lord; *
    and all the kings of the earth thy majesty;
  16. When the Lord shall build up Sion, *
    and when his glory shall appear;
  17. When he turneth him unto the prayer of the poor destitute, *
    and despiseth not their desire.
  18. This shall be written for those that come after, *
    and the people which shall be born shall praise the Lord.
  19. For he hath looked down from his sanctuary; *
    out of the heaven did the Lord behold the earth;
  20. That he might hear the mournings of such as are in captivity, *
    and deliver them that are appointed unto death;
  21. That they may declare the Name of the Lord in Sion, *
    and his worship at Jerusalem;
  22. When the peoples are gathered together, *
    and the kingdoms also, to serve the Lord.
  23. He brought down my strength in my journey, *
    and shortened my days.
  24. But I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of mine age; *
    as for thy years, they endure throughout all generations.
  25. Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth, *
    and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
  26. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: *
    they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
  27. And as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed; *
    but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
  28. The children of thy servants shall continue, *
    and their seed shall stand fast in thy sight.
