    from the hands of my enemies.

C.  Have mercy on me, have mercy on me O God,
    I lie in the midst of lions,
    lions greedy to devour men,
    their teeth are spears and arrows.

C.  Have mercy on me, have mercy on me O God,
    they laid a net for my steps, 
    they dug a pit for me,
    but fell into it themselves.

C.  My heart is ready, my heart is ready O God,
    I mean to sing and play for you;
    awake, awake my soul,
    I will awake the dawn.

C.  I will praise you, Lord, among the peoples,  
    to you I will sing hymns among the nations,
    for your love is higher than the heavens,
    your faithfulness than the clouds.
