My Title of Liberty

     "In Memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children." - Alma 46:12    

Psalms Chapter 57

David pleads for mercy and acclaims the glory and exaltation of God.

To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1 Be merciful unto me, O God,
Be merciful unto me:
For my soul trusteth in Thee:
Yea, in the shadow of thy wings
Will I make my refuge,
Until these calamities be overpast.

2 I will cry unto God most high;
Unto God that performeth all things for me.

3 He shall send from heaven,
And save me from the reproach
Of him that would swallow me up.

God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.

4 My soul is among lions:
And I lie even among them that are set on fire,
Even the sons of men,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.

5 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Thy glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net for my steps;
My soul is bowed down:
They have digged a pit before me,
Into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves.

7 My heart is fixed, O God,
My heart is fixed:
I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake up, my glory;
Awake, psaltery and harp:
I myself will awake early.

9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people:
I will sing unto Thee among the nations.

10 For Thy mercy is great unto the heavens,
And Thy truth unto the clouds.

11 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens:
Let Thy glory be above all the earth.
