1 When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room; Now I'm in trouble again: grace me! hear me!
2 You rabble - how long do I put up with your scorn? How long will you lust after lies? How long will you live crazed by illusion?
3 Look at this: look Who got picked by God! He listens the split second I call to him.
4 Complain if you must, but don't lash out. Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking.
5 Build your case before God and wait for his verdict.
6 Why is everyone hungry for more? "More, more," they say. "More, more." I have God's more-than-enough,
7 More joy in one ordinary day Than they get in all their shopping sprees.
8 At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep, For you, God, have put my life back together.
