Psalm 43

1 Give me justice, O God, and plead my cause

 against a nation that is faithless.

 From the deceitful and the cunning

 rescue me, O God.

2 You, O God, are my strength;

 why have you rejected me?

 Why do I go mourning,

 oppressed by the foe?

3 O send forth your light and your truth;

 they will guide me on.

 They will bring me to your holy mountain,

 to the place where you dwell.

4 And I will come to the altar of God,

 to God, my joy and gladness.

 To you will I give thanks on the harp,

 O God, my God.

5 Why are you cast down, my soul;

 why groan within me?

 Hope in God; I will praise him yet again,

 my saving presence and my God.
