 Carol's Journey

My Psalm 120

In times of trouble and distress
My situation is never hopeless
Lord, You will answer my cry
Even when I doubt or ask why

Protect my soul from lying lips
Deceitful tongue and sharp quips
They follow ways of the evil one
Your plan of justice will be done

What punishment are they due?
Lord, You are the final judge too
Piercing arrows used by a soldier
Fiery coals continue to smolder

Life is hard in this land that I sojourn
I am an alien passing through for sure
In a world of conflict that does not cease
It will end when You return to bring peace
