Prayer for Deliverance.
1 Vindicate R1296 me, O God, and plead R1297 my case against an ungodly nation;
O F387 deliver me from the R1298 deceitful and unjust man!
2 For You are the God R1299 of my strength; why have You rejected R1300 me?
Why do I go mourning R1301 because F388 of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out Your light R1302 and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy R1303 hill
And to Your dwelling R1304 places.
4 Then I will go to the R1305 altar of God,
To God my F389 exceeding joy; R1306
And upon the lyre R1307 I shall praise You, O God, my God.
5 Why R1308 are you in F390 despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope F391 in God, for I shall again F392 praise Him,
The help F393 of my countenance and my God.
