Psalm 57. Miserere mei, Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Eleventh Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful, for I have taken refuge in you; *
    in the shadow of your wings will I take refuge until this time of trouble has gone by.
  2. I will call upon the Most High God, *
    the God who maintains my cause.
  3. He will send from heaven and save me; he will confound those who trample upon me; *
    God will send forth his love and his faithfulness.
  4. I lie in the midst of lions that devour the people; *
    their teeth are spears and arrows, their tongue a sharp sword.
  5. They have laid a net for my feet, and I am bowed low; *
    they have dug a pit before me, but have fallen into it themselves.
  6. Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
    and your glory over all the earth.
  7. My heart is firmly fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; *
    I will sing and make melody.
  8. Wake up, my spirit; awake, lute and harp; *
    I myself will waken the dawn.
  9. I will confess you among the peoples, O Lord; *
    I will sing praise to you among the nations.
  10. For your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens, *
    and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
  11. Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
    and your glory over all the earth.
