VERSE 1:
In my distress I cried to God,
and He has answered me;
from lying lips, deceiving tongues,
O Lord, my soul set free.

CHORUS:
My soul, cry out to God on high;
He answers every plea.
In deep distress, have confidence—
He shall your soul set free.

VERSE 2:
What shall be done to you, O tongue,
for words unjust and false?
Sharp arrows of a mighty man,
and heat of burning coals.

CHORUS:
My soul, cry out to God on high;
He answers every plea.
In deep distress, have confidence—
He shall your soul set free.

VERSE 3:
Alas for me, that I must roam
this wilderness of strife!
Must I remain and tarry here,
in conflict spend my life?

CHORUS:
My soul, cry out to God on high;
He answers every plea.
In deep distress, have confidence—
He shall your soul set free.

VERSE 4:
Too long my soul is made to dwell
with those who peace abhor;
I am for peace, but when I speak
their hearts are set on war.

CHORUS:
My soul, cry out to God on high;
He answers every plea.
In deep distress, have confidence—
He shall your soul set free.
