Psalm 142. Voce mea ad Dominum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-ninth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. I cry to the Lord with my voice; *
    to the Lord I make loud supplication.
  2. I pour out my complaint before him *
    and tell him all my trouble.
  3. When my spirit languishes within me, you know my path; *
    in the way wherein I walk they have hidden a trap for me.
  4. I look to my right hand and find no one who knows me; *
    I have no place to flee to, and no one cares for me.
  5. I cry out to you, O Lord; *
    I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living."
  6. Listen to my cry for help, for I have been brought very low; *
    save me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.
  7. Bring me out of prison, that I may give thanks to your Name; *
    when you have dealt bountifully with me, the righteous will gather around me.
