Psalm 5

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 605 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 5 First Line: Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear Lyrics: Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear My voice ascending high; To thee will I direct my prayer, To thee lift up mine eye; Up to the hills where Christ is gone To plead for all his saints, Presenting at his Father's throne Our songs and our complaints. Thou art a God, before whose sight The wicked shall not stand; Sinners shall ne'er be thy delight, Nor dwell at thy right hand. But to thy house will I resort, To taste thy mercies there; I will frequent thine holy court, And worship in thy fear. O may thy Spirit guide my feet In ways of righteousness! Make every path of duty straight, And plain before my face. My watchful enemies combine To tempt my feet astray; They flatter, with a base design To make my soul their prey. Lord, crush the serpent in the dust, And all his plots destroy; While those that in thy mercy trust, For ever shout for joy. The men that love and fear thy name Shall see their hopes fulfilled; The mighty God will compass them With favor as a shield.

O Jehovah, Hear My Words

Meter: D Appears in 18 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 5 Lyrics: 1 O Jehovah, hear my words, to my thoughts attentive be; hear my cry, my King, my God, I will make my prayer to thee. With the morning light, O Lord, thou shalt hear my voice arise, and expectant I will bring prayer as morning sacrifice. 2 Thou, Jehovah, art a God who delightest not in sin; evil shall not dwell with thee, nor the proud thy favor win. Evil-doers thou dost hate, lying tongues thou wilt defeat; God abhors the man who loves violence and base deceit. 3 In the fulness of thy grace to thy house I will repair; bowing toward thy holy place, in thy fear to worship there. Lead me in thy righteousness, let my foes assail in vain; lest my feet be turned aside, make thy way before me plain. 4 False and faithless are my foes, in their mouth no truth is found; deadly are the words they speak, all their thoughts with sin abound. Bring, O God, their plans to naught, hold them guilty in thy sight, for against thee and thy law they have set themselves to fight. 5 O let all that trust thy care ever glad and joyful be; let them joy who love thy name, safely guarded, Lord, by thee. For a blessing from thy store to the righteous thou wilt yield; thou wilt compass him about with thy favor as a shield.

Psalm 5: Give ear unto my words, O Lord

Meter: Appears in 11 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 5 First Line: Give ear unto my words, O Lord Lyrics: 1Give ear unto my words, O Lord, my meditation weigh. 2Hear my loud cry, my King, my God; for I to thee will pray. 3Lord, thou shalt early hear my voice: I early will direct My pray’r to thee; and, looking up, an answer will expect. 4For thou art not a God that doth in wickedness delight; Neither shall evil dwell with thee, 5Nor fools stand in thy sight. All that ill-doers are thou hat’st; 6Cutt’st off that liars be: The bloody and deceitful man abhorred is by thee. 7But I into thy house will come in thine abundant grace; And I will worship in thy fear toward thy holy place. 8Because of those mine enemies, Lord, in thy righteousness Do thou me lead; do thou thy way make straight before my face. 9For in their mouth there is no truth, their inward part is ill; Their throat’s an open sepulchre, their tongue doth flatter still. 10O God, destroy them; let them be by their own counsel quell’d: Them for their many sins cast out, for they ‘gainst thee rebell’d. 11But let all joy that trust in thee, and still make shouting noise; For them thou sav’st; let all that love thy name in thee rejoice. 12For, Lord, unto the righteous man thou wilt thy blessing yield: With favour thou wilt compass him about, as with a shield.
