A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

Subdue our souls unto Thee,* O LORD; for Thou art our very patience: that we, rejecting the uncertainty of riches, and despising all earthly vanity, may follow Thee only. (1.)

Thou, O LORD, Who art the Hope of all,* hearken and have pity, as we pour out our hearts before Thee in prayer, and subject us unto Thee, that we may serve Thee; and of Thy loving-kindness help us when we are subject to sin; remove from us all wrong and robbery, bestow on us the jewels of Thy riches, and grant that we may know Thee, desire Thee, and have Thee for our GOD all the days of our life. (11.)

Unto Thee alone, O LORD,* Whom all nature acknowledges as its Creator, our soul is subject. From Thee we receive the virtue of patience, that we be not moved by any stumbling-block; and to Thee we know that we owe all that we are. Grant, therefore, that we never be sustained with unrighteous hope, nor set our hearts upon deceitful riches; that we may be wont to rest in Thee only, and to the end that we may attain our petitions, make our hearts contrite before Thee. (11.)

O GOD, Might unbounded;* let our soul and body be subdued unto Thee, and our life serve Thee most faithfully; vouchsafe to the soul that longing by which it may attain to Thee, and receive the prayer of our lips, so that the thousand-formed one may not creep in. Overcome the hidden enemy with Thy might; prevent us with Thy blessing, and lead us by the way of life to joys everlasting. (11.)
