Psalm 57 or
Coverdale
Miserere mei, Deus

1Be 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.

2I will call upon the Most High God, *
the God who maintains my cause.

3He will send from heaven and save me;
he will confound those who trample upon me; *
God will send forth his love and his faithfulness.

4I lie in the midst of lions that devour the people; *
their teeth are spears and arrows,
their tongue a sharp sword.

5They 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.

6Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
and your glory over all the earth.

7My heart is firmly fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; *
I will sing and make melody.

8Wake up, my spirit;
awake, lute and harp; *
I myself will waken the dawn.

9I will confess you among the peoples, O LORD; *
I will sing praise to you among the nations.

10For your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens, *
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

11Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
and your glory over all the earth.
