I love you, Lord. You are my strength.
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.
I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies.
The ropes of death came around me; the deadly rivers overwhelmed me.
The ropes of death wrapped around me. The traps of death were before me.
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.
