God Saved Me

I was helpless
and God helped me,
he saved me
where no one else could.

I was frightened,
fearing what would be

and God saved me

from myself,
from the situation I had got myself into,
from those who would harm me.
In my troubles
God stood with me.

In his name
I stand and praise

Psalm 34:1-8 (CEV)

(Written by David when he pretended to be crazy in front of Abimelech, so that Abimelech would send him away, and David could leave.)

Honor the Lord

34 I will always praise the Lord.
With all my heart,
    I will praise the Lord.
    Let all who are helpless,
    listen and be glad.
Honor the Lord with me!
    Celebrate his great name.

I asked the Lord for help,
    and he saved me
    from all my fears.
Keep your eyes on the Lord!
You will shine like the sun
    and never blush with shame.
I was a nobody, but I prayed,
    and the Lord saved me
    from all my troubles.

If you honor the Lord,
    his angel will protect you.
Discover for yourself
    that the Lord is kind.
    Come to him for protection,
    and you will be glad.

What Else? Psalm 34

I can only Speak
as I have found.
God has always been with me,
whether I have noticed him
or not.
when I am terrified,
which I am,
he is with me.
he walks with me,
hears my cries,
and answers me.

When I forget him,
he doesn’t forget me,
he rescues me
from myself
and all I bring upon myself.

Times can be hard,
but God is there.
He is my refuge,
the only place
to find rest
and shelter.

And so
I praise him.

What else can I do

Psalm 34:1-8 (NIVUK)

Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelek, who drove him away, and he left.

I will extol the Lord at all times;
    his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord;
    let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me:
    let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
