How I rejoice in your strength, O Lord,
I shout with joy because you give me victory.
For you have given me my heart's desire;
you have withheld nothing I have requested.
You welcome me with success and prosperity.
You place a crown of finest gold on my head.
I asked you to preserve my son's life,
and you granted my request.
The days of his life stretch on forever.
Your victory brings me great honour,
and you have clothed me with splendor and majesty.
You have endowed me with eternal blessings
and given me the joy of your presence.
For I trust in you Lord.
The unfailing love of the Most High
will keep me from stumbling.
(Spoken to God from Psalm 21:1-7)
