1MAY THE Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high [and defend you];
2Send you help from the sanctuary and support, refresh, and strengthen you from Zion;
3Remember all your offerings and accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah [pause, and think of that]!
4May He grant you according to your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans.
5We will [shout in] triumph at your salvation and victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners. May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.
7Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God.
8They are bowed down and fallen, but we are risen and stand upright.
9O Lord, give victory; let the King answer us when we call.
