Psalm 16. Conserva me, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Third Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; *
    I have said to the Lord, "You are my Lord, my good above all other."
  2. All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, *
    upon those who are noble among the people.
  3. But those who run after other gods *
    shall have their troubles multiplied.
  4. Their libations of blood I will not offer, *
    nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.
  5. O Lord, you are my portion and my cup; *
    it is you who uphold my lot.
  6. My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; *
    indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
  7. I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; *
    my heart teaches me, night after night.
  8. I have set the Lord always before me; *
    because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.
  9. My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; *
    my body also shall rest in hope.
  10. For you will not abandon me to the grave, *
    nor let your holy one see the Pit.
  11. You will show me the path of life; *
    in your presence there is fullness of joy, and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
