This original Scripture song based on Psalm 57 verses 1 and 7-10 is formatted as an instrumental duet (for a bass clef C-instrument with piano accompaniment). This arrangement is in the key of G major with the solo range (CELLO) of one octave; from the second B below middle C to the first B below middle C (B2 to B3). For the CELLO, all notes are playable in the first position making this piece an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players. The purchase price includes a 5-page combined score plus a 2-page solo score. Duration 3:00.

This Psalm is a prayer written by David while in a cave when he was fleeing from Saul (1 Samuel 22). It is presented here as a song of meditation and praise, drawing the listeners into an atmosphere of prayer and trust in God. The beautiful, lyrical style of this instrumental piece creates an atmosphere of worship and is an ideal selection for any church setting.

The lyrics (not included on the sheet music) were adapted from the King James Version (KJV) and the World English Version (WEB) and are printed below:

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
For my soul takes refuge in you,
In the shadow of your wings.
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
For in the shadow of your wings
My soul will always find
Refuge, refuge, refuge in You.

My heart is fixed on you, O God, my heart is fixed on you.
I’ll sing and give you praises.
I’ll wake up at dawn and give you thanks.
I’ll sing your praises to all people,
For your love is great.
You loving kindness reaches far beyond the starry skies.
Wake up, wake up, wake up and sing.

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
For my soul takes refuge in the shadow of your wings.
For my soul takes refuge in the shadow of your wings.
