English Revised Version
I will Give Thanks with My Whole Heart
1A Psalm of David. I will give thee thanks with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praises unto thee.
2I will worship toward thy holy temple, and give thanks unto thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
3In the day that I called thou answeredst me, thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul.
4All the kings of the earth shall give thee thanks, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth.
5Yea, they shall sing of the ways of the LORD; for great is the glory of the LORD.
6For though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the haughty he knoweth from afar.
7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
8The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever; forsake not the works of thine own hands.
