Be gracious, O Lord!
Let my prayer rise like incense,
my hands like an evening sacrifice.
1 I call to you, O Lord;
make haste to help me now;
Listen to me when I call to you. [Refrain]
2 Lord, I say to you, hear me.
Listen to me, Lord,
I am invoking you. [Refrain]
3 Place a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep my heart from inclining to evil;
save me from all wicked deeds and desires. [Refrain]
4 May the righteous reprove me in kindness,
but I will not let the wicked anoint my head;
I will always resist their evil deeds. [Refrain]
5 Lord God, my eyes are turned to you,
defend and protect me,
in you I take refuge. [Refrain]
6 Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Spirit, as it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be for ever. [Refrain]
