What the Psalms said to me today

To you I call, O LORD my Rock;
do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
I will be like those who have gone 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.

Save your people and bless your inheritance;
be their shepherd and carry them forever.

I think I recognise the last verse from a version in Te Deum, where it is

O Lord, save thy people and bless thine heritage;
Govern them and lift them up for ever.

I like the shepherd version much better.
