1. Make justice, O God, and defend my cause against an ungodly people; deliver me from the wicked and deceitful.
2. You are my God, my stronghold, why have you cast me out? Why should I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?
3. Send forth your light and your truth; let them be my guide, let them take me to your holy mountain, to the place where you reside.
4. Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my gladness and delight. I will praise you with the lyre and harp, O God, my God.
5. Why are you so downcast, my soul, why so troubled within me? Hope in God, for again I will praise him - my savior and my God.
