For the choir director: A psalm of David, asking God to remember him.
1Please, God, rescue me!
Come quickly, lord, and help me.
2May those who try to kill me
be humiliated and put to shame.
May those who take delight in my trouble
be turned back in disgrace.
3Let them be horrified by their shame,
for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”
4But may all who search for you
be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
repeatedly shout, “God is great!”
5But as for me, I am poor and needy;
please hurry to my aid, O God.
You are my helper and my savior;
O lord, do not delay.
