Psalter manuscript

Psalm 56: O God, be merciful to me


O God, be merciful to me,
For angry men oppress my way;
They undermine the things I do
And contradict the things I say.

When I’m afraid I trust in You;
What can the wicked do to me?
There is no fear within my heart
When all around Your truth I see.

My wandering days have been and gone;
You’ve counted every tear I’ve cried.
My enemies are beaten down
And God stands close here by my side.

Recalling promises I made
To Him who rescued me from sin,
Walking before Him in the light
With hymns and psalms of praise I’ll sing –
I’ll daily celebrate and sing!
