PSALM 54
METER:  11 10 11 10 11 10
TUNE:  FINLANDIA
This is the meter of the hymn "Be Still, My Soul"

1.  Save me, O God, by your might vin-di-cate me.
    O hear my pray'r, and lis-ten to my words.
    Proud, ruth-less ones rise up and want to kill me,
    They do not care that God is be-fore them.
    God is my help-er; he up-holds my life.
    He will re-pay for the wrong they have done.
2.  God, in your faith-ful-ness, put an end to them.
    Free-ly Í'll off-er sac-ri-fice to you;
    I will give thanks, O Lord, to your name ho-ly;
    I will give thanks, for God, your name is good.
    God has de-liv-ered me from ev-ery trou-ble.
    I look in tri-umph on my en-e-mies.
