Psalm 4 (Great Compline, Lent)

When I called upon Thee, O God of my righteousness, Thou didst hearken unto me; in mine affliction Thou hast enlarged me.
Have compassion on me and hear my prayer.
O ye sons of men, how long will ye be slow of heart?
Why do ye love vanity, and seek after falsehood?
Know also that the Lord hath made wondrous His holy one; the Lord will hearken unto me when I cry unto Him.
Be angry, and sin not; feel compunction upon your beds for what ye say in your hearts.
Sacrifice a sacrifice of righteousness, and hope in the Lord. Many say: Who will show unto us good things?
The light of Thy countenance, O Lord, hath been signed upon us; Thou hast given gladness to my heart.
From the fruit of their wheat, wine, and oil are they multiplied.
In peace in the same place I shall lay me down and sleep.
For Thou, O Lord, alone hast made me to dwell in hope.
