Psalm 43

1 Vindicate me, my God,

   and plead my cause

   against an unfaithful nation.

Rescue me from those who are

   deceitful and wicked.

2 You are God my stronghold.

   Why have you rejected me?

Why must I go about mourning,

   oppressed by the enemy?

3 Send me your light and your faithful care,

   let them lead me;

let them bring me to your holy mountain,

   to the place where you dwell.

4 Then I will go to the altar of God,

   to God, my joy and my delight.

I will praise you with the lyre,

   O God, my God.

5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?

   Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

   for I will yet praise him,

   my Saviour and my God.

Oh for a closer walk with you LORD in the here and now (through Jesus and the gospel), and eternally (when I go to your dwelling place). Meanwhile I hope in you my Saviour and my God. Amen.
