Psalm 20

2 May the LORD answer you in time of trial;

 may the name of Jacob’s God protect you.

 3 May he send you help from the holy place,

 and give you support from Sion.

4 May he remember all your offerings,

 and receive your sacrifice with favor.

 5 May he give you your heart’s desire,

 and fulfill every one of your plans.

6 May we ring out our joy at your victory,

 and raise banners in the name of our God.

 May the LORD grant all your prayers.

7 Now I know the LORD saves his anointed,

 and answers from his holy heaven

 with the mighty victory of his hand.

8 Some put their trust in chariots or horses,

 but we in the name of the LORD, our God.

 9 They will collapse and fall,

 but we shall rise up and hold firm.

 10 Grant salvation to the king, O LORD,

 give answer on the day we call.
