Psalm 56
1 Have mercy on me, O God,
for my enemies are hounding me;
all day long they assault and oppress me.

2 They hound me all the day long;
truly there are many who fight against me, O Most High.

3 Whenever I am afraid,
I will put my trust in you.

4 In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust and will not be afraid,
for what can flesh do to me?

5 All day long they damage my cause;
their only thought is to do me evil.

6 They band together; they lie in wait;
they spy upon my footsteps;
because they seek my life.

7 Shall they escape despite their wickedness?
O God, in your anger, cast down the peoples.

8 You have noted my lamentation;
put my tears into your bottle;
are they not recorded in your book?

9 Whenever I call upon you, my enemies will be put to flight;
this I know, for God is on my side.

10 In God the Lord, whose word I praise,
in God I trust and will not be afraid,
for what can mortals do to me?

11 I am bound by the vow I made to you, O God;
I will present to you thank-offerings;

12 For you have rescued my soul from death and my feet
from stumbling,
that I may walk before God in the light of the living.

A Collect for Peace
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
