They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, eager to take my life.
They attack, they lurk, They watch my steps, As they have waited to take my life.
They come together to spy on me––watching my every step, eager to kill me.
They gang up, sneak together through the alleys To take me by surprise, wait their chance to get me.
They come together, they are waiting in secret places, they take note of my steps, they are waiting for my soul.
They stir up strife, they lurk, they watch my steps. As they hoped to have my life,
They gather together, They hide, they mark my steps, When they lie in wait for my life.
