To the chief musician, a psalm to bring to remembrance.
1 O GOD, to rescue me,
Lord, to mine help, make hast.
2 Let them that after my soul seek
asham’d be, and abasht:
Turn’d back and sham’d let them
that in my hurt delight.
3 Turn’d back let them ha, ha, that say,
their shame for to requite.
4 Let all those that thee seek
joy, and be glad in thee:
let such as love thy health say still,
magnified let God be.
5 Make hast to me Lord, for
I poor am and needy:
thou art mine aid, and my helper
o Lord; do not tarry.
