1 God of my justice, when I call,
O hear me when distressed,
Thou hast enlarged me; show me grace
And hear thou my request.
2 Ye sons of men my glory turn
To shame, how long will you?
How long will ye love vanity,
And still deceit pursue? Selah.
3 But know the Lord hath set apart
For him the gracious saint:
The Lord will hear when unto him
I pour out my complaint.
4 Be stirred up, but do not sin,
Within your heart with silence deep
When on your bed you lie.
5 The sacrifice of righteousness
Let sacrificed be,
And confidently put your trust
Upon the Lord do ye.
6 Many there be that say, O who
Will cause us good to see?
The light, Lord, Of thy countenance,
Let on us lifted be.
7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart
More than the time wherein
Their corn and their new wine also
Have much increased been.
8 In peace with him I will lie down,
And I my sleep will take:
For me in confidence to dwell,
Thou Lord alone dost make.
