listen to my plea!
Answer me because you are faithful and righteous.
for no one is innocent before you.
He has knocked me to the ground
and forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.
I am paralyzed with fear.
I ponder all your great works
and think about what you have done.
I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain.
for my depression deepens.
Don’t turn away from me,
or I will die.
for I am trusting you.
Show me where to walk,
for I give myself to you.
I run to you to hide me.
for you are my God.
May your gracious Spirit lead me forward
on a firm footing.
Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.
and destroy all my foes,
for I am your servant.
