Let my cry reach You, LORD;
give me understanding according to Your word.
Let my plea reach You;
rescue me according to Your promise.
My lips pour out praise,
for You teach me Your statutes.
My tongue sings about Your promise,
for all Your commands are righteous.
May Your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen Your precepts.
I long for Your salvation, LORD,
and Your instruction is my delight.
Let me live, and I will praise You;
may Your judgments help me.
I wander like a lost sheep;
seek Your servant,
for I do not forget Your commands.
