Psalm 4

2 I called, the God of justice gave me answer;

 from anguish you released me, have mercy and hear me!

3 Children of man, how long will my glory be dishonored,

 will you love what is futile and seek what is false?

4 Know that the LORD works wonders for his faithful one;

 the LORD will hear me whenever I call him.

5 Tremble, do not sin: ponder on your bed and be still.

 6 Offer right sacrifice, and trust in the LORD.

7 “What can bring us happiness?” many say.

 Lift up the light of your face on us, O LORD.

8 You have put into my heart a greater joy

 than abundance of grain and new wine can provide.

9 In peace I will lie down and fall asleep,

 for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
