God, for your sake, help me! Use your influence to clear me.
Listen, God - I'm desperate. Don't be too busy to hear me.
Outlaws are out to get me, hit men are trying to kill me. Nothing will stop them; God means nothing to them.
Oh, look! God's right here helping! God's on my side,
Evil is looping back on my enemies. Don't let up! Finish them off!
I'm ready now to worship, so ready. I thank you, God - you're so good.
You got me out of every scrape, and I saw my enemies get it.
