Psalm 31......In you oh Lord I put my trustMay I never be ashamedFor you are my Rock and strong high towerAnd my wild heart you have tamedI stand upon the solid RockOf Christ my King DivineYou lead and guide, you are my strengthI the branch, You the VineConsider my troubles oh Lord my GodIn grief my eyes waste awayMy bones are dry, I have no strengthMy life is like an endless dayMy enemies laugh, they are full of scornAnd fear lies on every sideI'm a broken vessel, forgotton and lostAnd I'm drowning by an incoming tideYet I trust in you, you are my GodAnd my times they are in your handAnd I shall hide, in the secret placeAnd on this Rock I shall forever standHow great is your goodness oh Mighty GodYou are the Rock of my salvationLove the Lord your God, ye saints of earthFor He bring justice to every nationPsalm 32..........Oh Lord when I kept silentMy bones indeed grew oldThis drought has sapped my very lifeInto slavery I've been soldYet even now I will cry outAnd confess my sins to theeYou'll rend the heavens and come downAnd in your presence I am freeAnd with my voice I did cry outFrom a place where I was boundNow is the time to cry to GodIn a time when He may be foundAnd you shall be my hiding placeYou will guide me with your eyeAnd you will lead me where you willEven if I must surely diePsalm 33.......Sing unto our God a new songLift up your hands to Him in praiseFor He is our Lord and lifter of our headsAnd we shall bow to Him all of our daysBy the word of His mouth, the heavens sprang to lifeAnd He gathers up the oceon in a heapThe earth is full of the goodness of the LordAnd the order of the stars is His to keepSo let the earth rejoice and the people stand in aweHe rides upon the circle of the earthFrom heaven above, He sees the sons of menThey glorify the Lord they long to serveNo king is saved by the number of his menHis strength shall not deliver in that hourOur hope is in the Lord and Him aloneIts by His Spirit not by might nor pow'rSo we wait upon you LordYou are our strength and shieldWe trust in you alone forever moreWe lift your name on highAnd forever we shall cryWhen you knock we run and open up the doorPsalm 34.........I will bless the Lord at all times My souls shall make its boast in theeI will bless the Lord at all timesFor He's the one who came and set me freeI sought the Lord and He heard meAnd He delievered me from all my fearsI sought the Lord and He heard meHe came down and dried up all of my tearsLet our faces shine as we gaze on theeLet us run into our strong high towerLet our faces shine as we gaze on theeExalting you in this our final hourOh taste and see that the Lord is goodAnd you can trust Him with all of your heartOh taste and see that the Lord is goodAnd from Him we shall never ever partHe is close to those whose hearts are brokenAnd He loves a spirit that it contriteHe is close to those whose hearts are brokenHe will draw near when in our darkest nightAnd though the afflictions of the saints are manyThe Lord delivers us out of them allAnd although the affliciton of the saints are manyHe always hears our desperate call
I only read the Psalm 34 one (it's late here), but I really liked it. It was very encouraging. May the Lord bless you as you take on this endeavor!
