1 God, there is a man who is not one of your loyal followers. That man is crooked and tells lies. God, save me from that man! Defend me and prove that I am right. 2 God, you are my place of safety! Why did you leave me? Why must I suffer such sadness because of the cruelty of my enemy? 3 God, let your light and truth shine on me. Your light and truth will guide me. They will lead me to your holy mountain. They will lead me to your home. 4 I will come to God’s altar. I will come to the God who makes me so very happy. God, my God, I will praise you with a harp. 5 Why am I so sad? Why am I so upset? I should wait for God’s help. I will get the chance to praise God yet. He will save me!
