View Lyrics
In the day of looming trouble, Lord, rescue me;
God, my Helper and Devliv'rer, answer my plea.
Danger heightens my awareness
of my poverty and weakness—
I depend on Your salvation: swift may it be!

Those who come with plans to harm me—turn them away;
and on all who plot my downfall, send disarray.
Even some who walk beside me
taunt me, threaten, or deride me:
let their shameful schemes be thwarted; keep them at bay.

Lord, may all who love Your mercy sing day and night,
knowing that the highest honors are Yours by right:
for, though countless trials assail us,
we know You will never fail us,
God, our Helper and Devliv'rer, God, our Delight.
