Text:Domine exaudi

84a. Domine exaudi

1 Lord heare my prayer, heark the plaint
that I do make to thee:
And in thy native truth and in
thy justice answer me.
2 In judgement with thy servant Lord,
O enter not at all:
For justified be in thy sight
not one that liveth shall.

3 The enemy hath pursu'd my soule,
my life to ground hath thrown,
And laid me in the dark, like them
that dead are long agone.
4 Within me in perplexity
was mine accumbred sprite:
And in me was my troubled heart
amazed and affright.

5 Yet I record time past, in all
thy works I meditate:
Yea in thy works I meditate,
that thy hands have create.
6 To thee, O Lord my God, loe I
do stretch my craving hands:
My soule desireth after thee,
as do the thirsty lands.

7 Heare me with speed, my spirit doth faile,
hide not thy face me fro:
Els shall I be like them that dwon
into the pit do go.
8 Let me thy loving-kindnesse in
the morning heare and know:
For in thee is my trust, show me
the way where I shall go.

9 For I lift up my soule to thee,
O Lord deliver me
From all mine enemies, for I
have hidden me with thee.
10 Teach me to do thy will for thou,
thou art my God, I say:
Let thy good Spirit into the land,
of mercy me convey.

11 For thy name's sake with quickning grace
alive do thou me make:
And out of trouble bring my soule,
even for thy justice sake.
12 And of thy mercy slay my foes,
O Lord, destroy them all
That do oppresse my soule for I
thy servant am and shall.
