Representative Text

1. Deliver me, O God;
To help me, Lord, make haste,
2. Shame and confusion be their lot,
Who seek my soul to waste.
Defeat, and put to rout,
All that desire my hurt.
3. Be disappointment their reward,
Who make my grief their sport.

4. Who seek thee, let rejoice,
In thee be satisfied;
Who thy salvation love, still say,
"The Lord be magnified."
5. I'm poor, distressed, O God,
Make haste to me, I pray;
My help, and my deliverer, thou,
O Lord, make no delay.
