1 Vindicate me, God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation.Oh, deliver me from deceitful and wicked men.

2 For you are the God of my strength. Why have you rejected me?Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 Oh, send out your light and your truth.Let them lead me.Let them bring me to your holy hill,To your tents.

4 Then I will go to the altar of God,to God, my exceeding joy.I will praise you on the harp, God, my God.

5 Why are you in despair, my soul?Why are you disturbed within me?Hope in God!For I shall still praise him:my Savior, my helper, and my God.
