2. I cry aloud to the Lord, in a loud voice I beseech the Lord.

3. Before him I pour out my sorrows, before him I lay bare my troubles

4. and my spirit grows faint. But you know my path. Along the way I walk they have hidden a trap for me.

5. Look to my right and see: no one recognizes me. I have lost all means of escape; no one wants to help me.

6. I cry to you, O Lord; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living."

7. Listen to my groaning, for I am in deep despair. Rescue me from my pursuers, for they are too strong for me.

8. O, set me free from captivity, that I may praise your name! Then the righteous will gather about me when they see that you took care of me.





“O Senhor sempre orienta e chama; mas não se quer segui-lo e responder-lhe, pois só se vê os próprios interesses. Às vezes, pelo fato de se ouvir sempre a Sua voz, ninguém mais se apercebe dela; mas o Senhor ilumina e chama. São os homens que se colocam na posição de não conseguir mais escutar.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
