Let my prayer rise to you.
Like incense let it rise.
Lord guard my lips, keep watch of my words.
Do not let my heart turn to evil.
If the just strike me down, it’s done out of kindness.
I pray against all hateful ways.
Let all that stray, from what is good,
be thrown a rock of judgement.
Then they will know, I spoke the truth.
Their lives will be scattered and torn
With eyes fixed on you, I long for your shelter
Do not leave me defenseless, O God.
Shield me from all that evil engages,
O Lord keep me safe from their nets.
