I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied
as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
hear me when I call to you.
May my prayer be set before you
like incense; may the lifting up of my hands
be like the evening sacrifice.
Set a guard over my mouth, Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
you are my Rock,
do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
I will be like those who go down to the pit.
Hear my cry for mercy
as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your Most Holy Place.
