1Show me your favor, God. Show me your favor. I go to you for safety. I will find safety in the shadow of your wings. There I will stay until the danger is gone.2I cry out to God Most High. I cry out to God, and he carries out his plan for me.3He answers from heaven and saves me. He puts to shame those who chase me. Selah He shows me his love and his truth.4Men who are like lions are all around me. I am lying down among hungry animals. Their teeth are like spears and arrows. Their tongues are like sharp swords.5God, may you be honored above the heavens. Let your glory be over the whole earth.6My enemies spread a net to catch me by the feet. I felt helpless. They dug a pit in my path. But they fell into it themselves. Selah7God, my heart feels secure. My heart feels secure. I will sing and make music to you.8My spirit, wake up! Harp and lyre, wake up! I want to sing and make music before the sun rises.9Lord, I will praise you among the nations. I will sing about you among the people of the earth.10Great is your love. It reaches to the heavens. Your truth reaches to the skies.11God, may you be honored above the heavens. Let your glory be over the whole earth.

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth
1To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
