Psalm 20

(from Day 4 Morning Prayer)

Exaudiat te Dominus

  1. THE Lord hear thee in the day of trouble: the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
  2. Send thee help from the sanctuary: and strengthen thee out of Sion;
  3. Remember all thy offerings: and accept thy burnt-sacrifice;
  4. Grant thee thy heart's desire: and fulfil all thy mind.
  5. We will rejoice in thy salvation, and triumph in the Name of the Lord our God: the Lord perform all thy petitions.
  6. Now know I that the Lord helpeth his Anointed, and will hear him from his holy heaven: even with the wholesome strength of his right hand.
  7. Some put their trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the Name of the Lord our God.
  8. They are brought down, and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
  9. Save, Lord, and hear us, O King of heaven: when we call upon thee.
