“Rescue me out of the mire; may I not sink! 

May I be rescued from my foes, 
and from the watery depths. 

Let not the flood-waters overwhelm me, 
nor the abyss swallow me up, 
nor the pit close its mouth over me. 

I am afflicted and in pain; 
let your saving help, O God, protect me. 
I will praise the name of God in song, 
and I will glorify him with thanksgiving. 

“See, you lowly ones, and be glad; 
you who seek God, may your hearts revive! 
For the LORD hears the poor, 
and his own who are in bonds he spurns not.” -Psalms 69(68):15-16.30-31.33-34.
