Please listen to me God – Psalm 5

The Psalmist calls to God to hear him. God despises violence. (Program Songs of Hope 2012 07 08, Psalm 5 v 1 to 7)

Psalm 5:1-7

1 Listen, Lord, as I pray!
Pay attention when I groan.

2 You are my King and my God.
Answer my cry for help
because I pray to you.

3 Each morning you listen
to my prayer,
as I bring my requests to you
and wait for your reply.

4 You are not the kind of God
who is pleased with evil.
Sinners can’t stay with you.

5 No one who boasts can stand
in your presence, Lord,
and you hate evil people.

6 You destroy every liar,
and you despise violence
and deceit.

7 Because of your great mercy,
I come to your house, Lord,
and I am filled with wonder
as I bow down
to worship
at your holy temple.
