For the choir director: according to “The Lilies.” Davidic.Save me, God,
for the water has risen to my neck. I have sunk in deep mud, and there is no footing;
I have come into deep waters,
and a flood sweeps over me.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls;
all Your breakers and Your billows have swept over me.
You threw me into the depths,
into the heart of the seas,
and the current overcame me.
All Your breakers and Your billows swept over me.
Suddenly, a violent storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves. But He was sleeping.
A fierce windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking over the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped.
Don’t let the floodwaters sweep over me
or the deep swallow me up;
don’t let the Pit close its mouth over me.
Reach down from heaven;
rescue me from deep water, and set me free
from the grasp of foreigners
I will be with you
when you pass through the waters,
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not overwhelm you.
You will not be scorched
when you walk through the fire,
and the flame will not burn you.
The waters engulfed me up to the neck;
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to You
at a time that You may be found.
When great floodwaters come,
they will not reach him.
Then the waters would have engulfed us;
the torrent would have swept over us;
the raging waters would have swept over us.
and as they were sailing He fell asleep. Then a fierce windstorm came down on the lake; they were being swamped and were in danger.
