Refuge from Disgrace

Bad people don’t fight fairly, Lord; please save me from their plots.

Their tongues are sharp, their words are hard, and they take fearless shots.

—-

There’s no relent in their intent to set out secret snares.

They’re very keen to stay unseen as evil they prepare.

—-

So shoot them down, and wound them, quick, and bring them to their ruin.

Then everyone will spread the word of what you have been doin’.

—-

We’ll think about the way that you provide a special place

where righteous folks of ev’ry type find refuge from disgrace.
