67. Cast Me Not In Wrath Away

1 Cast me not in wrath away
As I come before Thee.
Why wilt Thou in anger slay?
Spare me, I implore Thee.
Let Thy grace,
Lord, displace
All Thy sore displeasure;
Mete with mercy's measure.

2 Father, let Thy love be shown,
Pardon my transgression.
Nor Thy erring child disown;
Make me Thy possession.
Be my soul
Rendered whole,
With the oil of gladness,
Do Thou cure my sadness.

3 In the pit who thinks of Thee?
Who shall praises render?
From the grave deliver me,
God of mercies tender;
Let my lays
Sing Thy praise
When in regions yonder
I Thy goodness ponder.

4 Be ye gone, ye wicked foes,
Nor again draw near me;
God, the Healer of my woes,
Now inclines to hear me;
Death and hell,
Fierce and fell,
In your bonds of anguish
I have ceased to languish.

5 Praise, O Father, be for aye
Thine on earth, in heaven;
Praises likewise be alway
To Thee, Savior, given;
Holy Dove,
God of love,
Thou hast heard:--I bless Thee
And in praise address Thee.
