O hear my prayer, LORD God of hosts;
O Jacob's God, give ear to me.
With favor, God, look on our shield,
The face of Your anointed see.
Much better one day in Your courts
Compared to thou-sands spent out-side!
I'd rather as God's dooman stand
Than in the wicked's tents reside.
A sun and shield is God the LORD:
The LORD gives grace and glory too;
From blameless ones, no good withholds.
Blessed LORD of hosts, those trusting You.
