Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer from those that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation I will praise thee.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation, and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: from generation to generation we will sing thy praises.
Therefore the ransomed of the LORD shall return and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head; they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great charity with which he loved us,
unto him be glory in the congregation by Christ Jesus throughout all generations of the ages of the ages. Amen.
