Of David. To you, LORD, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit.
For the director of music. To the tune of "Lilies." Of David. Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths.
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters would have swept us away.
