1 To you, Lord, have I come for shelter:
let me never be put to shame.
2 In your righteousness rescue and deliver me:
incline your ear to me and save me.
3 Be for me a rock of refuge, a fortress to defend me:
for you are my high rock, and my stronghold.
4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked:
from the grasp of the pitiless and unjust.
5 For you, Lord, are my hope:
you are my confidence, O God, from my youth upward.
6 On you have I leaned since my birth:
you are he that brought me out of my mother’s womb, and my praise is of you
