Psalm 17 : 2-3a, 3bc-4, 5-6, 7
I love You, o Lord, my Strength, the Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, my Deliverer and my God.
He is the Rock in Whom I take refuge. He is my Shield, my powerful Saviour, my Stronghold. I call on the Lord, Who is worthy of praise : He saves me from my enemies!
A deadly flood surrounded me, devillish torrents rushed at me; caught by the cords of the grave, I was brought to the snares of death.
But I called upon the Lord in my distress, I cried to my God for help; and from His Temple He heard my voice, my cry of grief reached His ears.
