11. No Longer, Lord, Despise Me

1 No longer, Lord despise me,
Nor in thy wrath chastise me,
Thy mercy I implore.
How long Thine anger cherish?
Consumed thereby I perish;
My soul is troubled sore.

2 To me, O Lord, returning,
Save Thou, with pity yearning.
Shall death Thy memory keep?
Or shall the grave confess Thee?
Or I give thanks and bless Thee,
While day and night I weep?

3 The Lord will ever hear me,
And when I pray be near me,
To put my foes to shame;
Turned back, no more to grieve me,
They suddenly shall leave me.
All glory to His Name!
