1Declare me innocent, O God!
Defend me against these ungodly people.
Rescue me from these unjust liars.
2For you are God, my only safe haven.
Why have you tossed me aside?
Why must I wander around in grief,
oppressed by my enemies?
3Send out your light and your truth;
let them guide me.
Let them lead me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you live.
4There I will go to the altar of God,
to God—the source of all my joy.
I will praise you with my harp,
O God, my God!
5Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!
