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.
You are the Holy One enthroned,
the Praise of Israel.
In You our fathers trusted;
They trusted and You rescued them.
To You they cried out and they escaped;
in You they trusted and were not disappointed.
A prayer of Moses, the man of G-d.
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 G-d.
I bless the Lord who has guided me;
my conscience admonishes me at night.
I am ever mindful of the Lord’s presence;
He is my right hand; I shall never be shaken.
Why so downcast, my soul,
why disquieted within me?
Have hope in G-d;
I will yet praise Him,
my ever-present help, my G-d.
When I am afraid, I trust in You,
in G-d, Whose word I praise,
In G-d I trust;
I am not afraid.
