A Prayer for Help
(Psalm 40.13-17)
1 Save me, O God!
Lord, help me now!
2 May those who try to kill me
be defeated and confused.
May those who are happy because of my troubles
be turned back and disgraced.
3 May those who make fun of me
be dismayed by their defeat.

4 May all who come to you
be glad and joyful.
May all who are thankful for your salvation
always say, “How great is God!”

5 I am weak and poor;
come to me quickly, O God.
You are my savior and my Lord
hurry to my aid!
