to help me Lord
For the director of music. A prayer of David.
God, hurry and save me.
Lord, come quickly and help me.
2 Let those who are trying to kill me be put to shame.
Let them not be honoured.
Let all those who want to destroy me
be turned back in shame.
3 Some people make fun of me.
Let them be turned back when their plans fail.
4 But let all those who look to you
be joyful and glad because of what you have done.
Let those who love you because you save them always say,
“May God be honored!”
5 But I am poor and needy.
God, come quickly to me.
You are the One who helps me and saves me.
Lord, please don’t wait any longer.
