Psalm 108. Paratum cor meum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-second Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O GOD, my heart is ready, my heart is ready; *
    I will sing, and give praise with the best member that I have.
  2. Awake, thou lute and harp; *
    I myself will awake right early.
  3. I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples; *
    I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
  4. For thy mercy is greater than the heavens, *
    and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
  5. Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens, *
    and thy glory above all the earth;
  6. That thy beloved may be delivered: *
    let thy right hand save them, and hear thou me.
  7. God hath spoken in his holiness; *
    I will rejoice therefore, and divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
  8. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; *
    Ephraim also is the strength of my head; Judah is my lawgiver;
  9. Moab is my wash-pot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; *
    upon Philistia will I triumph.
  10. Who will lead me into the strong city? *
    and who will bring me into Edom?
  11. Hast not thou forsaken us, O God? *
    and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
  12. O help us against the enemy: *
    for vain is the help of man.
  13. Through God we shall do great acts; *
    and it is he that shall tread down our enemies.
