on Psalm 56
[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
They hotly pursue with slander and lies,
they press their attack, proud plottings devise.
When I am afraid,
then in God I will trust.
For mercy I prayed –
he is able and just.
They twist all my words, they lurk and they plan:
but fleeting the foulest scheming of man.
Record my lament, you know every tear;
my foes will withdraw: the Judge will appear.
Conspiracies cut short; in Christ safe in death,
he keeps me from stumbling, I’m walking in faith.
In God I will trust,
and his Word I will praise.
He’s able and just,
so I fear not men’s ways.
