God of my righteousness to me

God of my righteousness to me

Representative Text

1 God of my righteousness to me,
while calling, bend thine ear:
Thou hast enlarged me when distressed;
me pity; hear my prayer.
2 Ye sons of men, how long will ye
my glory villify?
How long love vanity will ye?
and how long seek a lie. (Selah)

3 But know, the LORD hath set apart
the pious for his own:
The LORD will hear me when to him
I make my humble moan.
4 Stand ye in awe, and sin no more;
consider seriously,
Within your hearts with silence deep,
as on your beds ye lie.

5 The sacrifice of righteousness
let freely offered be
And therewith place your confidence
upon the LORD do ye.
6 While multitudes inquiring are,
who'll cause us good to see?
The light, LORD, of thy countenance
let on us lifted be.

7 Thou givest more gladness in my heart
than theirs in times wherein
Their harvest-corn and their new wine,
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.

The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, 1758
