Psalm 138

1 I will give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart:
    even before the gods will I sing your praises.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name:
    because of your faithfulness and your loving-kindness, for you have made your name and your word supreme over all things.
3 At a time when I called to you, you gave me answer:
    and put new strength within my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord:
    for they have heard the words of your mouth;
5 And they shall sing of the ways of the Lord:
    that the glory of the Lord is great.
6 For though the Lord is exalted, he looks upon the lowly:
    and he comprehends the proud from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of danger, yet will you preserve my life:
    you will stretch out your hand against the fury of my enemies, and your right hand shall save me.
8 The Lord will complete his purpose for me:
    your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures for ever; do not forsake the work of your own hands.
