Psalms 69:1-3

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of David.

1 [a]Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
2 I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.
3 I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.
