Psalm 69 1-3, 15-17 - Save Me
Same me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul.
I stick fast in the deep mire, where no ground is: I am come into deep waters, so that the floods run over me.
I am weary of crying: my throat is dry: my sight faileth me for waiting so long upon my God ...
Take me out of the mire, that I sink not; O let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
Let not the water-flood drown me, neither let the deep swallow me up: and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
Hear me, O Lord, for thy loving-kindness is comfortable: turn thee unto me according to the multitude of thy mercies.
