Answer Me When I Call!
For the choirmaster. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.
1Answer me when I call,
O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved my distress;
show me grace and hear my prayer.
2 How long, O men, will my honor be maligned?
How long will you love vanity and seek after lies a?
3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for Himself;
on your bed, search your heart and be still.
5 Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
and trust in the LORD.
6 Many ask, “Who can show us the good?”
Shine the light of Your face upon us, O LORD.
7 You have filled my heart with more joy
than when grain and new wine abound.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
