Here I Am (Psalm 3)

My God, there are many who wish to undo me;

   many who want me undone!

   Many, who say,

   God is not on my side that She does not have my back

Indeed…

you are ruthless, my Lady,

   and seem not to care what happens to me

   as I go about your service.

So I cry out, “Here, I am,”

   answer me.

I am tired and need some rest;

   help me stay awake, help me rest assured.

I will not be afraid

   despite those who do not support me

   despite those who do not believe in me.

Rise up, my God

   and lift me up, my Lady!

Take the breath away of those, who would undo me;

   let them be undone without a vote.

Be on my side and have my back;

   let my prayer be:

   I have received many graces and blessings,

   give me more graces and blessings.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
