Psalm 18:1-6 NCV

1 I love you, Lord. You are my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my protection, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender.
3 I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies.
4 The ropes of death came around me; the deadly rivers overwhelmed me.
5 The ropes of death wrapped around me. The traps of death were before me.
6 In my trouble I called to the Lord. I cried out to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my call for help reached his ears.
