O God, Save Me By Your Name…

(Psalm 53, as typically prayed during the sixth (noon) hour of the Office of Daily Prayer)

O God, save me by Your name;
by Your power uphold my cause.
O God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth.

For the proud have risen against me,
ruthless foes seek my life.
They have no regard for God.

But I have God for my help.
The Lord upholds my life.
Let the evil recoil upon my foes;
You who are faithful, destroy them.

I will sacrifice to You with willing heart
and praise Your name for it is good;
for You have rescued me from all distress
and my eyes have seen the downfall of my foes.
