To you O God I call
Please hear me, do not turn from me or be silent
Hear my cry for help and my call for mercy
I lift my hands in prayer to you.
Do not let me remain with the wicked and the evil ones – those who harbour malice in their hearts. Let them face what they have done.
Yet Lord, praise be to you – for I know you hear me.
You are my strength and shield
My heart trusts in you, leaps for you
And I rejoice in thanks to you.
Lord, I know you are the source of strength for all your people.
Lord, save those who are yours
Bless those who are your inheritance
Be their shepherd and carry them always.
Thank you God that you hear, you act and you save.
