"becoming by grace what God is by nature"
-St Athanasius (De Incarnatione, I).
I trust in you;
do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3No one who hopes in you
will ever be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
who are treacherous without cause.
4Show me your ways, Lord,
teach me your paths.
5Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
6Remember, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.
7Do not remember the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways;
according to your love remember me,
for you, are good.
8Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
9He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.
10All the ways of the are loving and faithful
toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
