Psalm 070

First Version (S.M.)

1    Lord, haste me to deliver;

          with speed, Lord, succour me.

2    Let them that for my soul do seek

          sham’d and confounded be:

     Turn’d back be they, and sham’d,

          that in my hurt delight.

3    Turn’d back be they, Ha, ha! that say,

          their shaming to requite.

4    In thee let all be glad,

          and joy that seek for thee:

     Let them who thy salvation love

          say still, God praised be.

5    I poor and needy am;

          come, Lord, and make no stay:

     My help thou and deliv’rer art;

          O Lord, make no delay.

Second Version (C.M.)

1    Make haste, O God, me to preserve;

          with speed, Lord, succour me.

2    Let them that for my soul do seek

          sham’d and confounded be:

     Let them be turned back, and sham’d,

          that in my hurt delight.

3    Turn’d back be they, Ha, ha! that say,

          their shaming to requite.

4    O Lord, in thee let all be glad,

          and joy that seek for thee:

     Let them who thy salvation love

          say still, God praised be.

5    But I both poor and needy am;

          come, Lord, and make no stay:

     My help thou and deliv’rer art;

          O Lord, make no delay.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
