Help Us Accept Each Other

Deliver Me from Evil

Deliver me from evil;
defend me, Lord, from wrong.
The violent have gathered,
with poison on their tongue.
From those who plot to hurt me
or catch me in their snare,
protect me, Lord, and keep me
safeguarded in your care.

Notes

ACCEPTANCE, by John Ness Beck (b. Warren, OH, 1930; d. Columbus, OH, 1987), was published as a four-part anthem to "Help Us Accept Each Other" (1977) by Fred Kaan (PHH 277). The tune features a consistently syncopated rhythmic pattern in each of its four lines. The unison melody should be sung with intensity. The accompaniment harmonies should not overpower–play the alto and tenor parts on a separate manual. MUNICH (279) is a more familiar alternate tune for this psalm text.
