May we enjoy, O Lord, Your faithful care,
as we put our hope in You.
The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord;
all who practice it gain sound understanding.
Be patient and wait for the Lord,
do not be vexed by the prospering man who carries out his scheme.
Give up anger, abandon fury,
do not be vexed;
it can only do harm.
Hear my voice, O Lord, at daybreak;
at daybreak I plead before You, and wait . . . .
O Lord, lead me along Your righteous path . . .
make Your way straight before me.
. . . He leads me to water in places of repose;
He renews my life;
He guides me in right paths as befits His name.
Sing to the Lord a song of praise,
chant a hymn with lyre to our G-d,
Who covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
makes mountains put forth grass . . .
May integrity and uprightness watch over me,
for I look to You.
O God, redeem Israel
from all its distress.
