Psalm 54

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Save me, O God, by thy great name,
       and judge me by thy strength:
2    My prayer hear, O God; give ear
       unto my words at length.
3    For they that strangers are to me
       do up against me rise;
     Oppressors seek my soul, and God
       set not before their eyes.

4    The Lord my God my helper is,
       lo, therefore I am bold:
     He taketh part with ev'ry one
       that doth my soul uphold.
5    Unto mine enemies he shall
       mischief and ill repay:
     O for thy truth's sake cut them off,
       and sweep them clean away.

6    I will a sacrifice to thee
       give with free willingness;
     Thy name, O Lord, because `tis good,
       with praise I will confess.
7    For he hath me delivered
       from all adversities;
     And his desire mine eye hath seen
       upon mine enemies.
