Psalm 143. Domine, exaudi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-ninth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Lord, hear my prayer, and in your faithfulness heed my supplications; *
    answer me in your righteousness.
  2. Enter not into judgment with your servant, *
    for in your sight shall no one living be justified.
  3. For my enemy has sought my life; he has crushed me to the ground; *
    he has made me live in dark places like those who are long dead.
  4. My spirit faints within me; *
    my heart within me is desolate.
  5. I remember the time past; I muse upon all your deeds; *
    I consider the works of your hands.
  6. I spread out my hands to you; *
    my soul gasps to you like a thirsty land.
  7. O Lord, make haste to answer me; my spirit fails me; *
    do not hide your face from me or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
  8. Let me hear of your loving-kindness in the morning, for I put my trust in you; *
    show me the road that I must walk, for I lift up my soul to you.
  9. Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord, *
    for I flee to you for refuge.
  10. Teach me to do what pleases you, for you are my God; *
    let your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
  11. Revive me, O Lord, for your Name's sake; *
    for your righteousness' sake, bring me out of trouble.
  12. Of your goodness, destroy my enemies and bring all my foes to naught, *
    for truly I am your servant.
