Church of England 1662 Book of Common Prayer
1 My heart sheweth me the wickedness of the ungodly : that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
2 For he flattereth himself in his own sight : until his abominable sin be found out.
3 The words of his mouth are unrighteous, and full of deceit : he hath left off to behave himself wisely, and to do good.
4 He imagineth mischief upon his bed, and hath set himself in no good way : neither doth he abhor any thing that is evil.
5 Thy mercy, O Lord, reacheth unto the heavens : and thy faithfulness unto the clouds.
6 Thy righteousness standeth like the strong mountains : thy judgements are like the great deep.
7 Thou, Lord, shalt save both man and beast; How excellent is thy mercy, O God : and the children of men shall put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
8 They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of thy house : and thou shalt give them drink of thy pleasures, as out of the river.
9 For with thee is the well of life : and in thy light shall we see light.
10 O continue forth thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee : and thy righteousness unto them that are true of heart.
11 O let not the foot of pride come against me : and let not the hand of the ungodly cast me down.
12 There are they fallen, all that work wickedness : they are cast down, and shall not be able to stand.
