For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1May the Lord answer you when you are in trouble.
May the God of Jacob keep you safe.
2May he send you help from the sacred tent.
May he give you aid from Zion.
3May he remember all of your sacrifices.
May he accept your burnt offerings.
4May he give you what your heart longs for.
May he make all of your plans succeed.
5We will shout with joy when you win the battle.
We will lift up our flags in the name of our God.
May the Lord give you everything you ask for.
6Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king.
He answers him from his holy heaven.
The power of God's right hand saves the king.
7Some trust in chariots. Some trust in horses.
But we trust in the Lord our God.
8They are brought to their knees and fall down.
But we get up and stand firm.
9Lord, save the king!
Answer us when we call out to you!
