Hymnal: The Psalter #6 (1912) Meter: 126.96.36.199 Hymnal Title: The Psalter First Line: My righteous God, Who oft of old Lyrics: 1 My righteous God, Who oft of old
Hast saved from troubles manifold,
Give answer when I call to Thee,
Be gracious now and hear my plea.
2 How long, O men, will ye defame,
How long my glory turn to shame,
How long will ye vain follies prize,
How long pursue deceit and lies?
3 But know, the lord has set apart
The man of godly life and heart
To be His favored one for aye;
Jehovah hears me when I pray.
4 In rev'rence wait, from sin depart,
In meditation calm your heart;
Hold fast the right, be true and just,
And in Jehovah put your trust.
5 O who will show us any good,
Exclaims the faithless multitude;
But lift on us, O lord, we pray,
The brightness of Thy face this day.
6 More joy from Thee has filled my heart
Than great abundance could impart;
I lay me down to peaceful sleep,
For Thou, O Lord, dost safely keep.
