Psalm 43[a]

Vindicate me, God, and defend my cause
against an ungodly nation;
rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man.(A)
For You are the God of my refuge.
Why have You rejected me?
Why must I go about in sorrow
because of the enemy’s oppression?(B)

Send Your light and Your truth; let them lead me.(C)
Let them bring me to Your holy mountain,
to Your dwelling place.(D)
Then I will come to the altar of God,
to God, my greatest joy.(E)
I will praise You with the lyre,
God, my God.(F)

Why am I so depressed?
Why this turmoil within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will still praise Him,
my Savior and my God.(G)
