I am surrounded by the willful;
they encircle me and
take away my confidence.
I am naked and vulnerable.
I hurt in my bones;
I wallow in my misery.
I have nothing left
my body is sacked,
my heart is bursting.
I beg you, my Lady, be not far off;
oh my Strength, come quickly and help me.
Deliver me and do not let me succumb,
show me how precious I am.
Rescue me from the beasts;
save me from the headstrong and the willful.
I will be a witness for you;
I will praise you everyday in every way.
I will say
let all generations honor Her!
let all our descendants revere Her!
