Supplication of Christ in Agony (psalm 143:1-10)

Hear my prayer, O God,

give ear to my supplications!

In your faithfulness answer me,

in your righteousness!

Enter not into judgment with your servant

for no one living is righteous before you.

For the enemy has pursued me,

has crushed my life to the ground,

and has made me sit in darkness like those long dead.

Therefore my spirit faints within me;

my heart within me is appalled.

I remember the days of old,

I meditate on all that you have done;

I muse on what your hands have wrought,

I stretch out my hands to you;

my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.

Make haste to answer me, O God, My spirit fails!

Hide not your face from me,

lest I be like those who go down to the Pit,

Let me hear in the mourning of your steadfast love,

for in you I put my trust.

Teach me the way I should go,

for to you I lift up my soul.

Deliver me, O God, from my enemies.

I have fled to you for refuge!

Teach me to do your will for you are my God!

Let your good spirit lead me on a level path!

Glory be to the Father,

and the Son,

and the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning

is now and ever shall be world without end.

Amen.
