My Soul Takes Refuge in You
(1 Samuel 22:1-5; Psalm 142:1-7)
1For the Chief Musician; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David: Michtam: when he fled from Saul, in the cave. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
2I will cry unto God Most High; unto God that performeth all things for me.
3He shall send from heaven, and save me, when he that would swallow me up reproacheth; Selah God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
4My soul is among lions; I lie among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
6They have prepared a net for my steps; thy soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me; they are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah
7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing praises.
8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early.
9I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
10For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the skies.
11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
