I CALL ON YOU IN MY DISTRESS (PSALM 120)

I call on You in my distress,
and You answer me,
answer me.
I call upon the Lord, my God,
and God answers me,
answers me.

1. O, save me, Lord, from lying lips,
from deceitful tongues.
May they see Your arrows, Lord –
the fire of Your wrath!

2. Too long I've lived with men of hate,
men who lust for war.
Though I speak for peace, my God,
they will not listen, Lord.
