Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 4

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, a Psalm of David.

1 GOD of my justice, when I call

answer me: when distrest

thou hast enlarg’d me, shew me grace

and hear thou my request.

2 Ye sons of men, my glory turn

to shame how long will you?

how long will ye love vanity

and still deceit pursue?

3 But know the Lord doth for himself

set by his gracious saint:

the Lord will hear when I to him

do pour out my complaint.

4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,

consider seriously

within your heart upon your bed

and wholly silent be.

5 Let sacrifices of justice

for sacrifices be.

and confidently put your trust

on Jehovah do ye.

6 Many there be that say, O who

will cause us good to see?

the light, Lord, of thy countenance

let on us lifted be.

7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart,

more than the time wherein

their corn and also their new wine

have much increased been.

8 In peace with him I will lie down,

and take my sleep will I:

For thou, Lord, mak’st me dwell alone

in confident safety.
