R. Save me, O Lord, because of your love.
1. For your name’s sake act in my defence;
in the goodness of your love be my rescuer.
For I am poor and needy
and my heart is pierced within me. (R.)
2. Help me, Lord my God;
save me because of your love.
Let them know that this is your work,
that this is your doing. (R.)
3. Loud thanks to the Lord are on my lips.
I will praise him in the midst of the throng,
for he stands at the poor man’s side
to save him from those who condemn him. (R.)
O praise the Lord, Jerusalem!
He sends out his word to the earth.
