Psalm 57. Miserere mei, Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eleventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. BE merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; for my soul trusteth in thee; *
    and under the shadow of thy wings shall be my refuge, until this tyranny be overpast.
  2. I will call unto the Most High God, *
    even unto the God that shall perform the cause which I have in hand.
  3. He shall send from heaven, *
    and save me from the reproof of him that would eat me up.
  4. God shall send forth his mercy and truth: *
    my soul is among lions;
  5. And I lie even among the children of men, that are set on fire, *
    whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
  6. Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens; *
    and thy glory above all the earth.
  7. They have laid a net for my feet, and pressed down my soul; *
    they have digged a pit before me, and are fallen into the midst of it themselves.
  8. My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; *
    I will sing and give praise.
  9. Awake up, my glory; awake, lute and harp: *
    I myself will awake right early.
  10. I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples; *
    and I will sing unto thee among the nations.
  11. For the greatness of thy mercy reacheth unto the heavens, *
    and thy truth unto the clouds.
  12. Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens; *
    and thy glory above all the earth.
