1 I've taken refuge in you, LORD. Don't let me ever be put to shame!
In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame.
2 Deliver me and rescue me by your righteousness! Bend your ear toward me and save me!
In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me and save me.
3 Be my rock of refuge where I can always escape. You commanded that my life be saved because you are my rock and my fortress.
Be to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress, to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 My God, rescue me from the power of the wicked; rescue me from the grip of the wrongdoer and the oppressor
Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.
5 because you are my hope, Lord. You, LORD, are the one I've trusted since childhood.
For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
6 I've depended on you from birth— you cut the cord when I came from my mother's womb. My praise is always about you.
Upon you I have leaned from my birth; it was you who took me from my mother's womb. My praise is continually of you.
