David felt sure of escaping, for he believed that God regarded prayer; and therefore he began to sing unto his deliverer. This was no easy task. How should we have acted under the circumstances? Furious murderers were in the street around the house, thirsting for the good mans blood, and yet his faith enabled him to sing praises to God. O for the like confidence!
Thou’rt my rock and my defence;
Thou a tower unto Thy saints;
Thee I make my confidence,
Thee I’ll trust, though nature faints.
Glad thy mercies will I sing,
All thy power and love confess;
Thou hast been, O heavenly King,
My safe refuge in distress!
