My ears are full of doubts and deceitfulness,
Coming from destructive voices in the grave,
Now I’m groaning inside because of their lies,
And they will not cease until You come to save.
For You are not a God who delights in sin,
So silence the enemy in Your justice,
Protect me from their noise and I will rejoice,
Along with those defended by Righteousness.
Lord, give attention to the sound of our cries,
As we join the voices singing for Your fame,
Our tongues have been raised for Your glorious praise,
Because You are The Voice of all the redeemed.

Psalm 5 ESV
Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.
O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.
The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers. You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.
Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction;
their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue. Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels;
because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.
