Psalm 4 for worship — Duncan Wilson, UK

Lectionary reading – Easter 3
This might be read by a solo reader or responsively.

Answer me, O God.
When I have been in trouble
you have always been there for me.
Listen, and go gently with me.

There are those who insult you
by loving only what is worthless.
You will always listen
to those who stand by what is right.

There are many who pray
hoping just to get more for themselves.
But the peace you give me
is in knowing I rest entirely safe in your care.
