I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises.
Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, LORD, according to your laws.
Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law.
Yet you are near, LORD, and all your commands are true.
Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever.
Look on my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law.
Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise.
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.
Your compassion, LORD, is great; preserve my life according to your laws.
Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes.
