In you, O Lord, do I flee for refuge; never let me be disappointed.
Deliver me in your righteousness, deliver me: incline your ear to me and save me.
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can continually come. Send your messenger to defend me, for you are my stronghold and fortress.
Rescue me, O God, from the hand of the ungodly, from the hand of the unjust and cruel.
For you are my hope, O Lord God, my confidence since my childhood.
Upon you I have leaned upon from birth; it was you who brought me forth from my mother’s womb. My praise of you is constant.
