Psalm 64 reimagined

A psalm which David gave to the Choir Director to arrange.

  1. Creator, please hear my grievance and then act to safeguard me from those who would oppress me.
  2. The bullies develop schemes to target me – please defend me.
  3. They plan their verbal attacks, aiming to inflict the maximum hurt.
  4. Targeting anyone who is honest, they lay into people with venom and arrogance.
  5. They goad one another on in their hate and plot together behind closed doors, thinking that no-one knows what they are like.
  6. Their scheming gives them great pleasure especially when they create a plan which will inflict terrible pain but expose them to little risk.  That is how devious they are.
  1. But my Creator will not stand by.  He / she will act quickly to disrupt their plans.
  2. He / she will use their own words to ruin them and those who observe this will treat them with disgust.
  3. They will be taken aback by the amazing actions of the Creator and will respect and pay tribute to him / her.
  4. His / her followers will take pleasure in the Lord and find security in his / her presence.  Those who love integrity will cheer him / her on.
