Story behind the song
BE MERCIFUL TO ME - Psalm 56.

Be merciful to me, for I'm under attack: I am chased down the street by an angry wolf-like pack, I am slandered and jeered by the evil and unjust, and they make me afraid so I come to you in trust.

In God the Lord whose word I praise, in God I trust, I will not be afraid. What can mortal men do to me? What can mortal men do to me?

Be merciful to me, for they twist all I've said: they conspire and they lurk and they long to see me dead. But don't let them escape: bring your anger down on them. For I trust you, O God, and I turn to you again.

In God the Lord ...

Your covenant stands firm, O God. I will pay my vows of love, O God. You've delivered me from death, O God. You have set me free from all their threats.

In God the Lord ...
