Psalm 57:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Triumphant Faith

57 To the Pure and Shining One
King David’s golden song of instruction composed when he hid from Saul in a cave[a]
To the tune of “Do Not Destroy”
Please, God, show me mercy!
Open your grace-fountain for me,
for you are my soul’s true shelter.
I will hide beneath the shadow of your embrace,
under the wings of your cherubim,
until this terrible trouble is past.
I will cry out to you, the God of the highest heaven,
the mighty God, who performs all these wonders for me.
