you know every sin I’ve committed;
My life’s a wide-open book before you.
Don’t let those who look to you in hope be discouraged by what happens to me,
Dear Lord! God of the armies!
I beg you –
don’t let those out looking for you, come to a dead end. . .
by following me—
Please, Lord God, my Father, protect them.
(Taken from Psalm 69:5-6, The Message)
