Psalm 138

1 I thank you, LORD, with all my heart;

 you have heard the words of my mouth.

 In the presence of the angels I praise you.

 2 I bow down toward your holy temple.

I give thanks to your name

 for your merciful love and your faithfulness.

 You have exalted your name over all.

 3 On the day I called, you answered me;

 you increased the strength of my soul.

4 All earth’s kings shall thank you, O LORD,

 when they hear the words of your mouth.

 5 They shall sing of the ways of the LORD,

 “How great is the glory of the LORD!”

6 The LORD is high, yet he looks on the lowly,

 and the haughty he knows from afar.

 7 You give me life though I walk amid affliction;

 you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes.

With your right hand you save me;

 8 the LORD will accomplish this for me.

 O LORD, your merciful love is eternal;

 discard not the work of your hands.
