Prayer to God in Time of Trouble

1Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause

against an ungodly people;

from those who are deceitful and unjust

deliver me!

2For you are the God in whom I take refuge;

why have you cast me off?

Why must I walk about mournfully

because of the oppression of the enemy?

3O send out your light and your truth;

let them lead me;

let them bring me to your holy hill

and to your dwelling.

4Then I will go to the altar of God,

to God my exceeding joy;

and I will praise you with the harp,

O God, my God.

5Why are you cast down, O my soul,

and why are you disquieted within me?

Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,

my help and my God.
