Who Cares?--By Helen Dowd--Canada

Who Cares?
Psalm 142

I cried, "Oh Lord, please help me.
Please come and rescue me.
My enemy is waiting.
He's set a snare for me.

My spirit is so troubled.
My friends have fled away.
I looked around for refuge--
A place my head to lay.

There was no one to help me.
There was no one to care.
I turned to God my Savior.
He heard my desperate prayer.

My foe may still be present--
And stronger far than I--
Yet I'm no longer frightened,
For God, the Lord, is nigh.

He's wrapped His arms around me.
In Him I now can hide.
I'll ever sing His praises,
For He will be my Guide.

David's prayer from his cave.
See also I Sam. 22:1

  5. Hi Helen. A very tender and passionate poem you have created. Sometimes, and not always in a bad way, those we need are not able to be there for us, but God is ALWAYS there! Thank you for the reminder through your beautiful poem. Continued blessings!
