My Psalm 124

Psalm 124
If the Lord had not been for me,
let me say it again.
If the Lord had not been for me, 
when I was attacked & threatened,
When hurt and agony were thrown at me,
the enemy would have swallowed me alive.
The ocean would have engulfed me,
I would have drowned in the torrent.
I would have lost my life 
in the raging, fuming rapids.
BUT!  Praise the Lord!
He didn't go off and leave me!
He didn't leave me there, abandoned,
defenseless, or helpless like a rabbit in a pack of snarling dogs.
I escaped, flying free like a bird from a hunter's trap
that was broken and I escaped!
My help is in the name of the Lord,
Who is the Maker of heaven and earth.
