Psalm 3

(from Day 1 Morning Prayer)

Domine, quid multiplicati

  1. LORD, how are they increased that trouble me: many are they that rise against me.
  2. Many one there be that say of my soul: There is no help for him in his God.
  3. But thou, O Lord, art my defender: thou art my worship, and the lifter up of my head.
  4. I did call upon the Lord with my voice: and he heard me out of his holy hill.
  5. I laid me down and slept, and rose up again: for the Lord sustained me.
  6. I will not be afraid for ten thousands of the people: that have set themselves against me round about.
  7. Up, Lord, and help me, O my God: for thou smitest all mine enemies upon the cheekbone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
  8. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy people.
