1. [For the choirmaster Of David In commemoration] Be pleased, God, to rescue me, Yahweh, come quickly and help me!
2. Shame and dismay to those who seek my life! Back with them! Let them be humiliated who delight in my misfortunes.
3. Let them shrink away covered with shame, those who say to me, 'Aha, aha!'
4. But joy and happiness in you to all who seek you. Let them ceaselessly cry, 'God is great', who love your saving power.
5. Poor and needy as I am, God, come quickly to me! Yahweh, my helper, my Saviour, do not delay!
