Lord of my righteousness,
I cry out to you in distress,
needing your help and strength once again,
please don’t turn me away as I come with feeble arms,
my heart is low, and my spirit defeated within me.
O Lord, I remember your faithfulness,
how you have provided comfort, relief, and mercy,
the strength of your presence, lightness, and joy before.
Remember me in your loving kindness now,
and hear my spirit’s cry where words are strangled in my throat.
Lord look upon me in favor
because I have put faith in you alone.
I lift my heart to you and worship you
because you alone and always
are worthy, holy, and good.
Your delight lifts me up as you inhabit my praise,
I settle my spirit before you,
trusting you see and know me,
and love me all the way.
I bless your name.
