Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! Many are they that rise up against me.@Psalm 3:1

Paraphrase of Psalm 3; author unknown.

Southwell (Daman) William Daman, Psalmes of David in English Meter 1579 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O Lord, how many they
Who deeply trouble me;
How greatly are they multiplied
Who do me injury.

There is no help for him,
No help in God, they say;
Thou art my shield and glory, Lord,
Thou art my certain stay.

I called to God, He heard
From out His holy hill.
I fell asleep, I woke in peace,
For He sustained me still.

Arise and save, O Lord,
For Thou didst smite my foe.
Salvation cometh from the Lord;
His saints His blessings know.
