Saturday Psalm #43

Stick up for me, O God,
and be my hero, my defender,
from deceitful, 
or unjust,
or ignorant people.

You are my safe place,
the One I run to for protection;
though sometimes you seem oblivious 
to my needs,
I know (on my best days)
that I don’t need to be afraid of my enemy.

Send out your light and your truth;
let them lead me;
let them bring me into your presence,
and into the mountain of your holiness.

Let me bow before you
as a priest at your altar,
God my exceeding joy.
Let me praise you with beautiful music,
O God, my God.

Moods will come and go, Lord,
but let me never be cast down in my heart
like those who have no hope.
I hope in you, Lord God;
I find renewal in praising you,
my salvation and my God.
