Psalm 4




Psalm 4



*For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.





1 Answer me when I call to you, O God who declares me innocent. Free me from my troubles. Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.




2 How long will you people ruin my reputation? How long will you make groundless accusations? How long will you continue your lies?









3 You can be sure of this: The Lord set apart the godly for himself. The Lord will answer when I call to him.








4 Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent.









5 Offer sacrifices in the right spirit, and trust the Lord.




6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?” Let your face smile on us, Lord.




7 You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.









8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.





Love, your servant Garrett
