THE GOD WHO SUSTAINS
Min: Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.
Many are they who say of me, "There is no help for him in God.
Min: But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill.
Min: I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
Min: Arise, O Lord; Save me, O my God!
Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people.
Min: Give ear to my words, O Lord, Consider my meditation.
Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.
Min: My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.
For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You.
Min: But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
