Psalm 40: I waited for the Lord my God

Meter: Appears in 56 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 40 First Line: I waited for the Lord my God Lyrics: 1I waited for the Lord my God, and patiently did bear; At length to me he did incline my voice and cry to hear. 2He took me from a fearful pit, and from the miry clay, And on a rock he set my feet, establishing my way. 3He put a new song in my mouth, our God to magnify: Many shall see it, and shall fear, and on the Lord rely. 4O blessed is the man whose trust upon the Lord relies; Respecting not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 5O Lord my God, full many are the wonders thou hast done; Thy gracious thoughts to us-ward far above all thoughts are gone: In order none can reckon them to thee: if them declare, And speak of them I would, they more than can be number’d are. 6No sacrifice nor offering didst thou at all desire; Mine ears thou bor’d: sin-off ‘ring thou and burnt didst not require: 7Then to the Lord these were my words, I come, behold and see; Within the volume of the book it written is of me: 8To do thy will I take delight, O thou my God that art; Yea, that most holy law of thine I have within my heart. 9Within the congregation great I righteousness did preach: Lo, thou dost know, O Lord, that I refrained not my speech. 10I never did within my heart conceal thy righteousness; I thy salvation have declar’d, and shown thy faithfulness: Thy kindness, which most loving is, concealed have not I, Nor from the congregation great have hid thy verity. 11Thy tender mercies, Lord, from me O do thou not restrain; Thy loving-kindness, and thy truth, let them me still maintain. 12For ills past reck’ning compass me, and mine iniquities Such hold upon me taken have, I cannot lift mine eyes: They more than hairs are on mine head, thence is my heart dismay’d. 13Be pleased, Lord, to rescue me; Lord, hasten to mine aid. 14Sham’d and confounded be they all that seek my soul to kill; Yea, let them backward driven be, and sham’d, that wish me ill. 15For a reward of this their shame confounded let them be. That in this manner scoffing say, Aha, aha! to me. 16In thee let all be glad, and joy, who seeking thee abide; Who thy salvation love, say still, The Lord be magnify’d. 17I’m poor and needy, yet the Lord of me a care doth take: Thou art my help and saviour, my God, no tarrying make.

Psalm 40 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 105 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 40:5 First Line: I waited patient for the Lord Lyrics: I waited patient for the Lord, He bowed to hear my cry; He saw me resting on his word, And brought salvation nigh. He raised me from a horrid pit, Where mourning long I lay, And from my bonds released my feet, Deep bonds of miry clay. Firm on a rock he made me stand, And taught my cheerful tongue To praise the wonders of his hand, In a new thankful song. I'll spread his works of grace abroad; The saints with joy shall hear, And sinners learn to make my God Their only hope and fear. How many are thy thoughts of love! Thy mercies, Lord, how great! We have not words nor hours enough, Their numbers to repeat. When I 'm afflicted, poor, and low, And light and peace depart, My God beholds my heavy woe, And bears me on his heart.

Psalm 40 Part 2

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 40 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 40:6-9 First Line: Thus saith the Lord, Your work is vain Lyrics: Thus saith the Lord, "Your work is vain Give your burnt-offerings o'er; In dying goats, and bullocks slain, My soul delights no more." Then spake the Savior, "Lo, I'm here, My God, to do thy will; Whate'er thy sacred books declare, Thy servant shall fulfil. "Thy law is ever in my sight, I keep it near my heart; Mine ears are opened with delight To what thy lips impart." And see, the blest Redeemer comes, Th' eternal Son appears, And at th' appointed time assumes The body God prepares. Much he revealed his Father's grace, And much his truth he showed, And preached the way of righteousness Where great assemblies stood. His Father's honor touched his heart, He pitied sinners' cries, And, to fulfil a Savior's part, Was made a sacrifice. No blood of beasts on altars shed Could wash the conscience clean; But the rich sacrifice he paid Atones for all our sin. Then was the great salvation spread, And Satan's kingdom shook; Thus by the woman's promised seed The serpent's head was broke.

Psalm 40

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 34 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 40:5-10 First Line: The wonders, Lord, thy love has wrought Lyrics: The wonders, Lord, thy love has wrought, Exceed our praise, surmount our thought; Should I attempt the long detail, My speech would faint, my numbers fail, No blood of beasts on altars spilt Can cleanse the souls of men from guilt; But thou hast set before our eyes An all-sufficient sacrifice. Lo! thine eternal Son appears, To thy designs he bows his ears, Assumes a body well prepared, And well performs a work so hard. "Behold, I come," the Savior cries, With love and duty in his eyes, "I come to bear the heavy load Of sins, and do thy will, my God. "'Tis written in thy great decree, 'Tis in thy book foretold of me, I must fulfil the Savior's part; And lo! thy law is in my heart! "I'll magnify thy holy law, And rebels to obedience draw, When on my cross I'm lifted high, Or to my crown above the sky. "The Spirit shall descend and show What thou hast done, and what I do The wond'ring world shall learn thy grace, Thy wisdom, and thy righteousness."
