To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in you I trust. Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
