67. I love you, Lord, you heard my cries

I love you, Lord; you heard my cries,
and pitied every groan;
Long as I live, when troubles rise,
I'll hasten to your throne.

I love you, Lord; you bow your ear;
you're ever good and just.
Then let my heart feel no despair!
Your power has all my trust.

If you behold me sore distressed,
you bid my pains remove;
I'll turn my soul to you, my rest,
and witness to your love.
