Psalm 5

Click right arrow for audio
Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing.
Listen to my cry for help,
my Sovereign and my God,
for to you I pray.

In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice.
In the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.

By your great mercy, I come into your house.
In reverence I worship in your holy sanctuary.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness
Make your way clear before me.

Let all who take refuge in you be glad.
Let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

For surely, O LORD, you bless those you bring to righteousness.
You surround them with your favor as with a shield.
