1A Song. A Psalm of David. My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! (Ps 57:7)2Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn!3I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.4For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. (Ps 113:4)5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!6That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer me! (Ps 60:5)7God has promised in his holiness: “With exultation I will divide up Shechem and portion out the Valley of Succoth.8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah my scepter.9Moab is my washbasin; upon Edom I cast my shoe; over Philistia I shout in triumph.” (Ps 60:8)10Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom?11Have you not rejected us, O God? You do not go out, O God, with our armies.12Oh grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man!13With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
