May we enjoy, O Lord, Your faithful care,
as we put our hope in You.
Keep lies and false words from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches,
But provide me with my daily bread . . .
O Lord, You have been our refuge in every generation.
Before the mountains came into being,
before You brought forth the earth and the world,
from eternity to eternity, You are God.
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.
. . . 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.
