Psalm 54

(from Day 10 Evening Prayer)

Deus, in nomine

  1. SAVE me, O God, for thy Name's sake: and avenge me in thy strength.
  2. Hear my prayer, O God: and hearken unto the words of my mouth.
  3. For strangers are risen up against me: and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul.
  4. Behold, God is my helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
  5. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: destroy thou them in thy truth.
  6. An offering of a free heart will I give thee, and praise thy Name, O Lord: because it is so comfortable.
  7. For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
