Psalm 6 (ESV)

O Lord, rebuke me not in your anger, nor discipline me in your wrath. Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O Lord—how long?

 

Turn, O Lord, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?

 

I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes.

 

Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer. All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.

(To the tune of Greensleeves)

How long, how long? Lord, I am faint.

My bones cry out in agony.

My soul in anguish, fades away.

O Lord, how long til mercy?

Turn Lord and deliver me,

Unfailing love can rescue me.

Hear Lord, my desperate plea,

How long, how long til mercy?

All night I cry, my bed is drenched,

My eyes grow weak with sorrow.

I cannot see past a raging foe

How long, how long, til mercy?

God, God has heard my plea,

My sorrow and my weeping

See, see the mercy seat.

I wait, await your mercy.

God, God has heard our plea,

Our sorrow and our weeping

See, see the mercy seat.

We wait, await your mercy.

Psalm 3 (ESV)

O Lord, how many are my foes!
    Many are rising against me;
 many are saying of my soul,
    “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah

 

 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
    my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah

 

I lay down and slept;
    I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
    who have set themselves against me all around.

 

Arise, O Lord!
    Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
    you break the teeth of the wicked.

 

 Salvation belongs to the Lord;
    your blessing be on your people! Selah

(To the tune of "All I Have is Christ" by Jordan Kauflin)

I now am lost in darkest night, stumbling all alone.

The ones I cherished as my friends, have all become my foes.

I hear them laugh at such a fool; They mock me in my shame.

“His dear Jehovah, mighty rock - His God that cannot save.”

But in the dark, my shield still stands - my Glory and my God.

I cry to you and in your voice, all my fears - forgot.

You raise my head, my perfect bread, my rest within the storm.

I will not fear ten thousand men, when I can see my Lord.

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ

Hallelujah! Jesus is my life...
