lifting up my soul unto the LORD
not ashamed before my enemies
shown by God his ways, taught by him his paths
led by God in his truth, waiting on him
having all my sins forgiven and forgotten
blessed with seed inheriting the earth
fearing the LORD, and being taught his covenant
delivered of all my distresses
with my eyes ever toward God, my feet plucked from the net
