Lyrics

Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
Fight against those who fight against me!
Take hold of shield and rise up to help me!
Draw the spear and javelin against those who chase after me,
say to my soul, ”˜I'm your salvation.”

Let them be shamed , dishonour those who seek my life.
And be turned back who plan evil for me.
Chaff before the wind, God's angel driving away.
Let their way be dark and slippery,
The angel of the Lord pursuing them.

Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
Exulting in his deliverance.
All my bones say, ”˜O Lord, who's like you?
”˜You deliver the weak from those too strong for them,
”˜Save the weak and the needy from those who rob them.”

For without cause they hid their net for me;
And without cause they dug a pit for me.
Let ruin come on them unaware.
Let the net they hid ensnare them;
Let them fall in it”” to their ruin.

Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
Exulting in his deliverance.
All my bones say, ”˜O Lord, who's like you?
”˜You deliver the weak from those too strong for them,
”˜Save the weak and the needy from those who rob them.”

Malicious witnesses rise up; falsely accuse me
They repay me evil for good; It breaks my heart
I wore sackcloth when they were sick, and fasted too,
Bowed my head low as though I grieved for a friend

But at my stumbling they laughed, gathered against me;
Ruffians whom I did not know they tore at me;
Mocked me impiously more and more, gnashed teeth at me
How long, O Lord, will you look on? Save my life!

Then I will thank you in the great congregation;
In the mighty throng I will praise you.
Do not let my treach'rous enemies rejoice o'er me,
Or those who hate me without cause wink the eye.

For they do not speak peace, but make lies against us
They open wide their mouths against me;
Saying, ”˜Aha, now we've seen it!” Lord, don't be silent!
Lord, do not be far from me! Wake up for my defence!

Vindicate me, according to your righteousness,
Those who rejoice at my calamity
Be put to shame- those against me be clothed with shame.
Those who want my vindication shout for joy and be glad,
”˜Great is the Lord, who delights in his servant.”

Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
Exulting in his deliverance.
All my bones say, ”˜O Lord, who's like you?
”˜You deliver the weak from those too strong for them,
”˜Save the weak and the needy from those who rob them.”
