It’s not uncommon for a prophet to speak in the name of God. Hardcore critics of Catholic songs and hymns rather object to the assemblies at Mass doing this. That fussbudget attitude has rather faded in the past years, the bother about the so-called voice-of-God. Like Christians mostly don’t know the difference.
Psalm 91 concludes with a prophetic utterance. The psalmist knows the people will recognize God’s promise in the text. It’s a fitting reminder God intervenes for his precious sons, and even daughters–though a literal reading of the text might also put that in doubt.
Bottom line: be assured.
Because he clings to me I will deliver him;
because he knows my name I will set him on high.
He will call upon me and I will answer;
I will be with him in distress;
I will deliver him and give him honor.
With length of days I will satisfy him,
and fill him with my saving power.
