Who will arise and plead my right
and guard from numerous foes?
When earth and hell increase my plight,
my anxious worry grows!
"God, hold my sliding feet," I cried.
"Your statutes are my stay;
your mercies, constant by my side,
must guide me in your way.
“God, no attacks of mournful thoughts
can shake my inner peace.
Your love protects from others’ faults;
your guidance does not cease.
No works of mischief can arise
to set aside your laws,
for you, our refuge, rule the skies!
God, you defend my cause.”
