In You My Soul Takes Refuge
(1 Samuel 22:1–5; Psalm 108:1–13; Psalm 142:1–7)

1To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam. When he fled from Saul in the caue. Haue mercie vpon me, O God, haue mercie vpon me: for my soule trusteth in thee, and in the shadowe of thy wings wil I trust, till these afflictions ouerpasse.

2I will call vnto the most high God, euen to the God, that performeth his promes toward me.

3He will send from heauen, and saue me from the reproofe of him that would swallowe me. Selah. God wil send his mercy, and his trueth.

4My soule is among lions: I lie among the children of men, that are set on fire: whose teeth are speares and arrowes, & their tongue a sharpe sworde.

5Exalt thy selfe, O God, aboue the heauen, and let thy glory be vpon all the earth.

6They haue layd a net for my steps: my soule is pressed downe: they haue digged a pit before me, and are fallen into the mids of it. Selah.

7Mine heart is prepared, O God, mine heart is prepared: I will sing and giue prayse.

8Awake my tongue, awake viole & harpe: I wil awake early.

9I will prayse thee, O Lord, among the people, and I wil sing vnto thee among the nations.

10For thy mercie is great vnto the heauens, and thy trueth vnto the cloudes.

11Exalt thy selfe, O God, aboue the heauens, and let thy glory be vpon all the earth.
