Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God,
For to You I pray.
I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
O You who hear prayer,
To You all men come.
The bird also has found a house,
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,
Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,
My King and my God.
The Lord is King forever and ever;
Nations have perished from His land.
Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in!
You are my King, O God;
Command victories for Jacob.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
Yet God is my king from of old,
Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.
The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble;
He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
A Psalm of Praise, of David.
I will extol You, my God, O King,
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
For the Lord is our judge,
The Lord is our lawgiver,
The Lord is our king;
He will save us—
