1. Hear, Lord, my prayer, to my request,
Let thy kind ear attend;
And in thy truth, and righteousness,
A gracious answer send.
2. Let not thy servant, by strict rules,
Of justice, Lord, be tried;
For in thy sight, no man alive,
Could so be justified.
3. The foe pursued my soul, my life
Down to the ground did tread,
In darkness made to dwell, as those
That ages have been dead.
4. Therefore my spirit sinks in me;
My heart is desolate.
5. Past times I call to mind, and on
Thy, works I meditate.
6. With outstretched hand, thine aid I crave;
For thee my soul doth pant,
As thirsty lands, in summer's heat,
That cooling showers want.
7. Hear me with speed, hide not thy face,
My sinking spirit save;
Lest I should soon become like them,
That lie down in the grave.
8. Let me thy kindness early hear,
For I in thee confide;
Show me the way where I should go:
I look to thee, my guide.
9. From all my threatening enemies,
O Lord deliver me;
For shelter, from their rage, I fly,
To hide myself with thee.
10. Thou art my God, teach me thy will
Forever to obey;
Let thy good spirit me conduct,
In thy most righteous way.
11. Revive me, Lord, and spare my life.
That all thy name may sing;
For the honor of thy faithful word,
My soul from trouble bring.
12. In mercy to me, rout my foes,
Thy gracious aids afford,
Destroy all that afflict my soul;
For I'm thy servant Lord.
