Psalm 4

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness:
    when I was hard-pressed you set me free; be gracious to me now and hear my prayer.
2 Children of earth, how long will you turn my glory to my shame:
    how long will you love what is worthless and seek after lies?
3 Know that the Lord has shown me his wonderful kindness:
    when I call to the Lord he will hear me.
4 Tremble, and do no sin:
    commune with your own heart upon your bed and be still.
5 Offer the sacrifices that are right:
    and put your trust in the Lord.
6 There are many who say 'Who will show us any good?:
    the light of your countenance, O Lord, has gone from us.'
7 Yet you have given my heart more gladness:
    that they have when their corn, wine and oil increase.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep:
    for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.
