142:1 With my voice I cry out to the Lord; 3 When my spirit faints within me, 5 I cry to you, O Lord;
You Are My Refuge
with my voice I plead for mercy to the Lord.
2 I pour out my complaint before him;
I tell my trouble before him.
you know my way!
In the path where I walk
they have hidden a trap for me.
4 Look to the right and see:
there is none who takes notice of me;
no refuge remains to me;
no one cares for my soul.
I say, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.”
6 Attend to my cry,
for I am brought very low!
Deliver me from my persecutors,
for they are too strong for me!
7 Bring me out of prison,
that I may give thanks to your name!
The righteous will surround me,
for you will deal bountifully with me.
142:1 With my voice I cry out to the Lord;
3 When my spirit faints within me,
5 I cry to you, O Lord;
