For the music director; a psalm of David
1 May the Lord answer you when you are in trouble;
may the God of Jacob make you secure!
2 May he send you help from his temple;
from Zion may he give you support!
3 May he take notice of your offerings;
may he accept your burnt sacrifice! (Selah)
4 May he grant your heart’s desire;
may he bring all your plans to pass!
5 Then we will shout for joy over your victory;
we will rejoice in the name of our God!
May the Lord grant all your requests!
6 Now I am sure that the Lord will deliver his chosen king;
he will intervene for him from his holy heavenly temple,
and display his mighty ability to deliver.
7 Some trust in chariots and others in horses,
but we depend on the Lord our God.
8 They will fall down,
but we will stand firm.
9 The Lord will deliver the king;
he will answer us when we call to him for help!
