Psalm 43

Send Out Your Light and Your Truth

Give justice to me, O God, and plead my case against an unholy nation;
Oh protect me from the deceitful and unrighteous man!
For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

Oh send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy mountain
And to Your dwelling places.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Wait for God, for I shall still praise Him,
The salvation of my presence and my God.
