Psalm 108. Paratum cor meum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-second Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. My heart is firmly fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; *
    I will sing and make melody.
  2. Wake up, my spirit; awake, lute and harp; *
    I myself will waken the dawn.
  3. I will confess you among the peoples, O Lord; *
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
  4. For your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens, *
    and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
  5. Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
    and your glory over all the earth.
  6. So that those who are dear to you may be delivered, *
    save with your right hand and answer me.
  7. God spoke from his holy place and said, *
    "I will exult and parcel out Shechem; I will divide the valley of Succoth.
  8. Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine; *
    Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my scepter.
  9. Moab is my washbasin, on Edom I throw down my sandal to claim it, *
    and over Philistia will I shout in triumph."
  10. Who will lead me into the strong city? *
    who will bring me into Edom?
  11. Have you not cast us off, O God? *
    you no longer go out, O God, with our armies.
  12. Grant us your help against the enemy, *
    for vain is the help of man.
  13. With God we will do valiant deeds, *
    and he shall tread our enemies under foot.
