My God, don’t turn a deaf ear to my hallelujah prayer.
There are days I feel that liars are pouring out invective on me;
Their lying tongues are like a pack of dogs out to get me,
barking their hate, nipping my heels—and for no reason!
I loved them and now they slander me
and treat my prayer like a crime;
They return my good with evil,
they return my love with hate.
Oh, God, my Lord, step in; work a miracle for me—You can do it! Get me out of here—Your love is so great!
Help me, oh help me, God, my God, save me through Your wonderful love; then they’ll know that Your hand is in this, that You, God, have been at work. Let them curse all they want; You do the blessing.
My mouth’s full of great praise for God,
I’m singing His hallelujahs surrounded by crowds,
For He’s always at hand to take the side of the needy,
to rescue a life from the unjust judge.
