Psalm 57:1-8

1 Have pity on me, O God. Have pity on me, because my soul takes refuge in you. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until destructive storms pass by.
2 I call to God Most High, to the God who does everything for me.
3 He sends his help from heaven and saves me. He disgraces the one who is harassing me. Selah God sends his mercy and his truth!
4 My soul is surrounded by lions. I must lie down with man-eating lions. Their teeth are spears and arrows. Their tongues are sharp swords.
5 May you be honored above the heavens, O God. Let your glory extend over the whole earth.
6 [My enemies] spread out a net to catch me. (My soul is bowed down.) They dug a pit to trap me, but then they fell into it. Selah
7 My heart is confident, O God. My heart is confident. I want to sing and make music.
8 Wake up, my soul! Wake up, harp and lyre! I want to wake up at dawn.
