Lyrics (Psalm 16:5, 8, 9-10, 11):
Response: You are my inheritance, O Lord!
O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
you it is who hold fast my lot.
I set the LORD ever before me;
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed. Response
Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, abides in confidence;
because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption. Response
You will show me the path to life,
fullness of joys in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever. Response
