Solace for Slander
Psalm 4 -Symphony of Psalms
Accompaniment of the Chief Musician
Brought the heavy lament of David’s soul
To the string instruments and the chorus
In cacophony with his beating heart.
David speaks to G-d, his one soul’s Confidante,
Knowing the Divine is witness to all,
In righteousness with all the evidence,
The heavens bear witness to all slander.
The pain inflicted on David’s being
Can only be assuaged by the L-rd,
Giving his soul respite for length of nights,
Finally ushering a new sought dawn.
The music of harmony is restored;
The string instruments and chorus bring calm.
