Psalm 70

(from Day 13 Evening Prayer)

Deus, in adjutorium

  1. HASTE thee, O God, to deliver me: make haste to help me, O Lord.
  2. Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward and put to confusion that wish me evil.
  3. Let them for their reward be soon brought to shame: that cry over me, There, there.
  4. But let all those that seek thee be joyful and glad in thee: and let all such as delight in thy salvation say alway, The Lord be praised.
  5. As for me, I am poor and in misery: haste thee unto me, O God.
  6. Thou art my helper and my redeemer: O Lord, make no long tarrying.
