I Lift My Voice to the LORD
(1 Samuel 22:1–5; Psalm 57:1–11)

1The wise instruction of Dauid, a prayer when he was in the caue. I cryed vnto God with my voyce: euen vnto God I dyd make my supplication.

2I powred out before his face my cogitations: and I made a declaration of my trouble before his face.

3When my spirite was ouerwhelmed within me, thou knewest my path: in the way wherein I walked they haue priuily layde a snare for me.

4When I loked vpon my ryght hande and sawe rounde about me there was no man that woulde knowe me: I had no place to flee vnto, and no man cared for my soule.

5I cryed vnto thee O God, and sayde: thou art my hope and my portion in the lande of the lyuyng.

6Consider my complaynt, for I am brought very lowe: deliuer me from my persecutours, for they are to strong for me.

7Bryng my soule out of prison, that I may prayse thy name: the ryghteous shal compasse me rounde about, because thou hast thus rewarded me.
