1Be pleased, O God, to deliver me!

Lord, make haste to help me!

2Let them be put to shame and confusion

who seek my life!

Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor

who desire my hurt!

3Let them be appalled because of their shame

who say, “Aha, Aha!”

4May all who seek thee

rejoice and be glad in thee!

May those who love thy salvation

say evermore, “God is great!”

5But I am poor and needy;

hasten to me, O God!

Thou art my help and my deliverer;

Lord, do not tarry!
