A Prayer for Help

28 Only you, Lord,
    are a mighty rock![a]
    Don’t refuse to help me
    when I pray.
If you don’t answer me,
    I will soon be dead.
Please listen to my prayer
    and my cry for help,
    as I lift my hands
    toward your holy temple.

Don’t drag me away, Lord,
    with those cruel people,
    who speak kind words,
    while planning trouble.
Treat them as they deserve!
    Punish them for their sins.
They don’t pay any attention
    to your wonderful deeds.
    Now you will destroy them
    and leave them in ruin.

I praise you, Lord,
    for answering my prayers.
    You are my strong shield,
    and I trust you completely.
You have helped me,
    and I will celebrate
    and thank you in song.

You give strength
    to your people, Lord,
    and you save and protect
    your chosen ones.
Come save us and bless us.
    Be our shepherd and always
    carry us in your arms.
