1 I love you,Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock,my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation,my stronghold.
3 I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I have been saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death entangled me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5 The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.
