Psalm 69:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

A Cry of Distress[a]

69 To the Pure and Shining One
David’s poetic song of praise to the tune of “Lilies”
1–2 God, my God, come and save me!
These floods of trouble have risen higher and higher.
The water is up to my neck![b]
I’m sinking into the mud with no place to stand,
and I’m about to drown in this storm.
I’m weary, exhausted with weeping.
My throat is dry, my voice is gone, my eyes are swollen with sorrow,
and I’m waiting for you, God, to come through for me.
