A Cry for Help

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” A psalm of David.

69 God, ·save me [give me victory],
    because the water has risen to my neck [C the waters of chaos].
I’m sinking down into the ·mud [mire],
    and there is nothing to stand on.
I ·am in deep water [have come into the depths of the waters],
    and the flood ·covers [overwhelms] me.
I am ·tired [exhausted] from calling for help;
    my throat is ·sore [dry].
My eyes are ·tired [worn out] from ·waiting [hoping]
    for God to help me.
