Psalm 20

                                            For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 May the Lord answer you when you are in 

distress;

may the name of the God of Jacob protect

you.

2 May he send you help from sanctuary 

and grant you support from Zion.

3 May he remember all your sacrifices

and accept your burnt offerings.

4 May he give you the desire of your heart

and make all your plans succeed.

5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious

and will lift up our banners in the name of 

our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.

 6 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;

he answers him from his holy heaven

with the saving power of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariot and some in horses,

but we trust in the name of the Lord our 

God.

8 They are brought to their knees and fall,

but we rise up and stand firm.

9 O Lord, save the king!

Answer us when we call!
