In You, O LORD, I take refuge

Don’t let me be put to shame for trusting You
Do what’s righteous and deliver me
Incline Your ear to me
And quickly come rescue me
Be a mighty rock that guards me
A fortress where I’m safe

For You are my rock and my fortress
For the sake of Your name You’ll lead me and You’ll guide me
You’ll take me out of the net my enemies have hidden for me

For You are my refuge
O, You are my refuge

Into Your hand I commit my spirit
You have redeemed me, O Yahweh, God of truth
I hate those who trust in idols
But I have placed my hope in You, LORD
I will rejoice, I’ll be happy in Your love
Because You have seen my pain

And You, Lord, have known the anguish of my soul
And You will not deliver me into the hand of the enemy
No, You will set my feet in a wide and peaceful place

For You are my refuge
O, You are my refuge

Be merciful to me, O LORD
This pain is killing me
I cry until my eyes are spent
My soul and body ache with grief
My life is consumed by anguish
And my years with groaning
My strength is gone because of all my sin
And my bones waste away

Because of all my enemies, my name has been disgraced
My friends and neighbors turn from me, they shun me in the streets
I’m forgotten like someone who’s died
A shattered piece of clay
While I hear the whispers all around
Of violence planned for me
All around they gather
As they plot to take my life

But I trust in You, O LORD, and I say, “You are my God”
All my times are in Your hand
Rescue me from all my enemies
LORD, make Your face to shine upon me
Deliver me in Your never-ending love
Don’t let me be put to shame
For I call on You Let the wicked be put to shame
Let them go down silently into the pit
Let the lying lips be mute which speak against the righteous with angry pride
Let the lying lips be mute which speak against the righteous with angry pride
Let the lying lips be mute which speak against the righteous with angry pride

O, how abundant is Your goodness You store up for those who fear You
That You work for those who trust You in the sight of the children of mankind
In the cover of Your presence, You hide them from the plots of men
You shield them in Your shelter from the war of violent tongues

O, blessed be the LORD For He has shown His love so wondrously to me
When I was under siege, I said in my fear, “I’m cut off from Your sight”
But You heard my plea for mercy when I cried to You for help

O, love the LORD All you his saints
For the Lord preserves the faithful
But abundantly repays the one who acts in pride

Be strong, let your heart be valiant, all you that wait upon the LORD
Be strong, let your heart be valiant, all you that wait upon the LORD
Be strong, let your heart be valiant, all you that wait upon the LORD
Be strong, let your heart be valiant, all you that wait upon the LORD
