Lyrics: Psalm 54

Save me, O God, for thy name's sake, and avenge me in thy strength.
Hear my prayer, O God; and hearken unto the words of my mouth.
For strangers are risen up against me, and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul.
Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: destroy thou them in thy truth.
An offering of a free heart will I give thee: and will praise thy name, O Lord; because it is comfortable.
For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble: and mine eyes hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
So be it.
