Do not destroy

Based on Psalm 57 when David fled from Saul into the cave

Why do the wicked lie

And act so sly

Relentlessly they try

To make others cry

Why do they inflict pain

And cause tears to rain

Why do they deceive?

By doing so, what do they receive?

They lay a snare

Like lions, they’ll tear

A net they prepare

But I cry in despair

“Be merciful my God

Their tongue is a sword

I take refuge under your wings

For me, you perform all things

Please don’t destroy

Annihilate satan’s envoy

Reproach the one who’d swallow me up

Then I will praise you with my harp

Exalt your name among the nations

For your mercy reaches to the heavens!
