Faith in Hard Times

Psalm 43

1Vindicate me, O God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation;

O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man!

2For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?

Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;

Let them bring me to Your holy hill

And to Your dwelling places.

4Then I will go to the altar of God,

To God my exceeding joy;

And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

5Why are you in despair, O my soul?

And why are you disturbed within me?

Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,

The help of my countenance and my God.
