have freely been forgiven;
whose guilt is wholly covered
before the sight of heaven.
Blest, those to whom our Lord God

my strength was spent with grief.
Your hand was heavy on me;
my life found no relief.
But when I made confession
and hid no sin from you,
when I revealed my failings,
you gave me life anew.

3 So let the godly seek you,
when troubling times are near;
no storm or flood shall reach them,
nor cause their hearts to fear.
In you, O Lord, I hide me;
you save me from all ill.
And songs of your salvation
my heart with rapture fill.
