I love you, O Lord, my strength
my God . . in whom I take refuge.
I call upon the Lord,
who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
In my distress I called up on the Lord;
to my God I cried for HELP!!!!
From His temple He heard my voice,
and my cry to Him reached His ear.
(and now comes the show!)
Then the earth reeled,
smoke poured from His nostrils,
fire from His mouth.
He came on the wings of the wind,
covered in darkness,
preceded by hail and fire.
He thundered in the heavens as He spoke.
He sent arrows and lightning.
He revealed the depths of the sea
and laid bare the foundation of the world
at His rebuke.
He rescued me from my strong enemy . .
for they were too mighty for me.
For by You I can run against a troop,
and by my God I can leap over a wall.
This God - His way is perfect;
the Word of the Lord proves true;
He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.
Your gentleness made me great.
For You equipped me with strength for the battle.
