Deliver me from evil

Deliver me from evil,
defend me, Lord, from wrong.
The men of violence gather
with poison on their tongue.
From those who plot to hurt me
or catch me in their snare,
protect me, Lord, and keep me
safeguarded in your care.

2. O Lord, I have confessed you
to be my God alone.
Now hear my cry for mercy
and make your power known.
O sovereign Lord and Saviour,
my armour in the strife,
let not the wicked triumph
who wish to take my life.

3. Let their own evil strike them
and cause their overthrow,
so that the poor see justice
when evil is brought low.
The righteous will sing praises,
proclaim your name and grace;
the upright will live safely
within your sure embrace.
