A Call for Deliverance

For the choir director. Davidic. To bring remembrance.

1 God, deliver me. Hurry to help me, Lord!a
2 Let those who seek my life be disgraced and confounded; let those who wish me harm be driven back and humiliated.
3 Let those who say, "Aha, aha!" retreat because of their shame.b
4 Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let those who love Your salvation continually say, "God is great!"c
5 I am afflicted and needy; hurry to me, God. You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay.d
