1)BE merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by.
2)I will cry out to God Most High, To God who performs all things for me.
3)He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send His mercy and His truth.
4)My soul is among the lions; I lie among the sons of men Who are set on fire, Whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword.
5)Be exalted, O god, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
6)They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.
7)My heart is steadfast, ,O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.
8)Awake, my glory! Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn.
9)I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations.
10)For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens, And Your truth unto he clouds.
11)Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all heaven and earth.
