Help Me (Psalm 22) Part 3

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

“Praise God!

   let all generations honor Her!

let all our descendants revere Her!

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
