Savior (Psalm 142)

I call out to my God.

   I pray to Her for Her favor.

I pour out my problem to Her.

   I tell Her about my trouble.

When I grow weak,

   She knows what I’m going through.

In the path where I walk,

   people have hidden a trap to catch me.

Look around me, and you will see

   that no one is concerned about me.

I have no place of safety.

   No one cares whether I live or die.

My Lady, I cry out to you.

   I say, “You are my place of safety.

   You are everything I need in this life.”

Listen to my cry.

   I am in great need.

Save me from those who are chasing me.

   They are too strong for me.

My troubles are like a prison.

   Set me free so I can praise your name.

Then those who do what is right will gather around me   

because you have been good to me.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' 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
