the shadow of thy wings will I trust, till these

2 I will call unto the most high God, even the

God will send his mercy, and his truth.

4 My soul is among lions; I lie among the children

5 Exalt thyself, O God, above the heaven, and

6 They have laid a net for my steps; my soul is

let thy glory be upon all the earth.
