Note: a psalm that David gave to the Choir Director to arrange to the tune of “Death of the Son”.
- From the bottom of my heart, I will worship you, Lord, and give you thanks for all the amazing things that you have done.
- I will chant out your name, the Greatest of all Time, and will be excited about knowing you.
- Those who set themselves up to oppose me, melted away when you appeared in my defence.
- You have supported me, and in your courtroom, you have found me innocent.
- You have named those who are causing oppression and abuse and you have rooted out their wicked organisations.
- You have broken them up, so they are ruined and forgotten. You have finished them off.
- The Lord is the Supreme Judge and his / her appointment will last for all time.
- His / her jurisdiction is to bring justice to the whole world and to ensure fairness for all people.
- The Lord gives protection to the oppressed and supports them when times are tough.
- Those who know you, Lord, trust you, because you give help to anyone who searches you out.
- Let’s speak highly of the Lord, the Supreme Judge, to all who will listen. Let us recount his / her memorable judgments and actions.
- Not only does he / she punish murder, but he / she cares for those who have no one else to appeal to and he / she listens to the pleas of the suffering.
- Lord I need you to help me. My oppressors are torturing me – please rescue and release me.
- I will celebrate my release and tell all who will listen of your daring rescue.
- My oppressors have become ensnared in the trap they set for their victims – they have become locked in their own prison.
- The Lord is known to be even-handed whilst the actions of oppressors backfire on them.
- The wicked will be sunk by their own evil as happens to all who ignore the Supreme Judge.
- The calls of those who need help will be heard and the hopes of the poor will be nurtured and grown.
- It’s time to act, Lord. Don’t be ignored. Enter your courtroom and make judgments over those who cause oppression.
- May they fear your reputation and judgment, Lord. Let everyone know your authority.
