Help Me (Psalm 22) Part 2

For you have brought me here;

   I have trusted you

   I felt safe

   as safe as at my mother’s breast.

Yes, from birth I was chosen by you;

   from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

Do not be far from me,

   for trouble is near

   and there is no one to help.

I am surrounded by the headstrong;

   they encircle me and take away my freedom.

They are like roaring beasts

   they are too much for me

   my fierceness cannot overcome them

I am poured out like water,

   And all my bones ache.

   My heart has turned to wax;

   It has melted away within me.

My strength is gone, I am weary,

   I have a lump in my throat always;

   I cannot stand the tension.

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
