Excerpts from Psalm 55
Give ear to my prayer, O God;
And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.
Give heed to me and answer me;
I am restless in my complaint and
am surely distracted.
I said, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
Behold, I would wander far away,
I would lodge in the wilderness."
As for me, I shall call upon God
And the Lord will save me.
Evening and morning and at noon
I will complain and murmer.
And He will hear my voice.
Cast your burden upon the Lord
and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the righteous
to be shaken.
