O Lord, my heart is not proud nor my look haughty;
I do not aspire to great things or to what is beyond me;
but I have taught myself to be contented like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child am I in my mind.
O Israel, wait for the Lord now and forever.
I seek refuge in You, O Lord; may I never be disappointed.
As You are beneficent, save me and rescue me; incline Your ear to me, and deliver me.
Be a sheltering rock to me to which I may always repair;
decree my deliverance, for You are my rock and my fortress.
Like the birds that fly,
even so will the Lord of Hosts shield Jerusalem,
shielding and saving,
protecting and rescuing.
