1 Hear Thou my prayer, O Lord,
And listen to my cry;
Remember now Thy faithful word,
And graciously reply.
2 Do not in judgement rise
Thy servant's life to scan;
For righteous in Thy spotless eyes
Is found no living man.
3 I stretch my longing hands
Toward Thy holy place,
With soul athirst, like wary lands,
For Thy refreshing grace.
4 Haste Thee, O Lord, I pray,
My failing heart to save.
Hide not Thy face: I droop as they
That sink into the grave.
5 Thy mercy's early light
My faith desires to see;
O let me walk before Thy sight!
I lift my soul to Thee.
6 Let Thy good Spirit lead
My feet in righteous ways;
And for Thy name's sake, Lord, my head
Above my troubles raise.
