Psalm 28. Ad te, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Fifth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O Lord, I call to you; my Rock, do not be deaf to my cry; *
    lest, if you do not hear me, I become like those who go down to the Pit.
  2. Hear the voice of my prayer when I cry out to you, *
    when I lift up my hands to your holy of holies.
  3. Do not snatch me away with the wicked or with the evildoers, *
    who speak peaceably with their neighbors, while strife is in their hearts.
  4. Repay them according to their deeds, *
    and according to the wickedness of their actions.
  5. According to the work of their hands repay them, *
    and give them their just deserts.
  6. They have no understanding of the Lord's doings, nor of the works of his hands; *
    therefore he will break them down and not build them up.
  7. Blessed is the Lord! *
    for he has heard the voice of my prayer.
  8. The Lord is my strength and my shield; *
    my heart trusts in him, and I have been helped;
  9. Therefore my heart dances for joy, *
    and in my song will I praise him.
  10. The Lord is the strength of his people, *
    a safe refuge for his anointed.
  11. Save your people and bless your inheritance; *
    shepherd them and carry them for ever.
