1 Bow down thine ear, O Lord, and hear,
for I am poor and great my need;
preserve my soul, for thee I fear;
O God, thy trusting servant heed.
2 O Lord, be merciful to me,
for all the day to thee I cry;
rejoice thy servant, for to thee
I lift my soul, O Lord Most High.
3 For thou, O Lord, art good and kind,
and ready to forgive thou art;
abundant mercy they shall find
who call on thee with all their heart.
4 O Lord, incline thine ear to me,
my voice of supplication heed;
in trouble I will cry to thee,
for thou wilt answer when I plead.
5 There is no God but thee alone,
nor works like thine, O Lord Most High,
all nations shall surround thy throne
and their Creator glorify.
6 In all thy deeds how great thou art!
Thou one true God, thy way make clear;
teach me with undivided heart
to trust thy truth, thy name to fear.
