For the music leader. A psalm of David.
1I pray that the Lord answers you
whenever you are in trouble.
Let the name of Jacob’s God protect you.
2Let God send help to you from the sanctuary
and support you from Zion.
3Let God recall your many grain offerings;
let him savor your entirely burned offerings. Selah
4Let God grant what is in your heart
and fulfill all your plans.
5Then we will rejoice that you’ve been helped.
We will fly our flags in the name of our God.
Let the Lord fulfill all your requests!
6Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed one;
God answers his anointed one
from his heavenly sanctuary,
answering with mighty acts of salvation
achieved by his strong hand.
7Some people trust in chariots, others in horses;
but we praise the Lord’s name.
8They will collapse and fall,
but we will stand up straight and strong.
9Lord, save the king!
Let him answer us when we cry out!
