Psalm 11


I place my trust in You Lord
despite the insistence of other voices
that I should flee.
I am instructed to take wing,
like a bird,
and fly off into the mountains
where I shall find safety.

For my enemy has aimed his bow
in my direction.
His arrows fill the sky
and a new assault is prepared.

Lord,
if my weakness overcomes
and I cry out
from destruction,
be my security.

I place my trust in You Lord,
not mountains
or fortresses.
I will glorify You
when darkness fills the valley.
I will sing praise to You
when my enemy
calls for my surrender.
