David's Song of Victory

"The Lord is my protector;
He is my strong fortress.
My God is my protection,
and with him I am safe.
He protects me like a shield;
He defends me and keeps me safe.
He is my saviour;
He protects me and saves me from violence.
I call to the Lord,
and he saves me from my enemies.
Praise the Lord,
The waves of death were all around me;
The waves of destruction rolled over me.
The danger of death was round me
And the grave set its trap for me.
In my trouble I called to the Lord;
I called to my God for help.
In his temple he heard my voice;
He listened to my cry for help."

2 Samuel - 22: 2 - 7

Hannah's Prayer


The Lord has filled my heart with joy,
How happy I am because of what he has done!
I laugh at my enemies;
How Joyful I am because God has helped me!

No one is holy like the Lord;
There is none like Him
No protector like our God.

Stop your loud boasting;
Silence your proud words.
For the Lord is a God who knows,
And he judges all that people do.

The bows of strong soldiers are broken,
But the weak grow strong.
The people who once were well fed
Now hire themselves out to get food,
But the hungry are no more.

The childless wife has borne seven children,
But the mother of many is left with none.

The Lord kills and restores to life;
He sends people to the world of the dead
And brings them back again.

He makes some men poor and others rich;
He humbles some and makes others great.

He lifts the poor from the dust
and raises the needy from their misery.
He makes them companions of princes
And puts them in places of honour.

The foundations of the earth belong to the Lord;
on them he has built the world.

He protects the lives of his faithful people,
But the wicked disappear in darkness;
A man does not triumph by his own strength.

The Lord's enemies will be destroyed;
He will thunder against them from heaven.

The Lord will judge the whole world;
He will give power to his king,
He will make his chosen king

1 Samuel- 2: 1-10

Ruth's Love to Her Mother-in-law

   "Don't ask me to leave you! Let me go with you.Wherever you go,I will go; wherever you live,I will live.Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die,I will die, and that is where I will be buried.May the Lord's worst punishment come upon me if I let anything but death separate me from you!"

Ruth 1: 16-17
