Then I will hold my head high above my enemies who surround me. At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the LORD with music.
Hear me as I pray, O LORD . Be merciful and answer me!
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “ LORD, I am coming.”
Do not turn your back on me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation!
Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.
Teach me how to live, O LORD . Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me.
Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I’ve never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence.
Yet I am confident I will see the LORD ’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for the LORD . Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD .
