Scottish Psalter: Psalm 54

Psalm 54: Save me, O God, by thy great name

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

1 Save me, O God, by thy great name, and judge me by thy strength: 2 My prayer hear, O God; give ear unto my words at length.

3 For they that strangers are to me do up against me rise; Oppressors seek my soul, and God set not before their eyes.

4 The Lord my God my helper is, lo, therefore I am bold: He taketh part with ev’ry one that doth my soul uphold.

5 Unto mine enemies he shall mischief and ill repay: O for thy truth’s sake cut them off, and sweep them clean away.

6 I will a sacrifice to thee give with free willingness; Thy name, O Lord, because ‘tis good, with praise I will confess.

7 For he hath me delivered from all adversities; And his desire mine eye hath seen upon mine enemies.
