1. [Of David] I thank you, Yahweh, with all my heart, for you have listened to the cry I uttered. In the presence of angels I sing to you,

2. I bow down before your holy Temple. I praise your name for your faithful love and your constancy; your promises surpass even your fame.

3. You heard me on the day when I called, and you gave new strength to my heart.

4. All the kings of the earth give thanks to you, Yahweh, when they hear the promises you make;

5. they sing of Yahweh's ways, 'Great is the glory of Yahweh!'

6. Sublime as he is, Yahweh looks on the humble, the proud he picks out from afar.

7. Though I live surrounded by trouble you give me life -- to my enemies' fury! You stretch out your right hand and save me,

8. Yahweh will do all things for me. Yahweh, your faithful love endures for ever, do not abandon what you have made.





“Se você não entrega seu coração a Deus, o que lhe entrega?” “Você deve seguir outra estrada. Tire de seu coração todas as paixões deste mundo, humilhe-se na poeira e reze! Dessa forma, certamente você encontrará Deus, que lhe dará paz e serenidade nesta vida e a eterna beatitude na próxima.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
