King David on the Dupplin Cross. Pictish, c. 820 A.D.
“I waited patiently for the Lord;/ he inclined to me and heard my cry./2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction,/ out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock,/ making my steps secure. 3 He put a new song in my mouth,/ a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.”
