Representative Text

1 I love the Lord, because my voice
and prayers he did hear.
2 I, while I live, will call on him,
who bow’d to me his ear.

3 Of death the cords and sorrows did
about me compass round;
The pains of hell took hold on me,
I grief and trouble found.

4 Upon the name of God the Lord
then did I call, and say,
Deliver thou my soul, O Lord,
I do thee humbly pray.

5 God merciful and righteous is,
yea, gracious is our Lord.
6 God saves the meek: I was brought low,
he did me help afford.

7 O thou my soul, do thou return
unto thy quiet rest;
For largely, lo, the Lord to thee
his bounty hath exprest.

8 For my distressed soul from death
deliver’d was by thee:
Thou didst my mourning eyes from tears,
my feet from falling, free.

9 I in the land of those that live
will walk the Lord before.
10 I did believe, therefore I spake:
I was afflicted sore.

11 I said, when I was in my haste,
that all men liars be.
12 What shall I render to the Lord
for all his gifts to me?

13 I’ll of salvation take the cup,
on God’s name will I call:
14 I’ll pay my vows now to the Lord
before his people all.

15 Dear in God’s sight is his saints’ death.
16 Thy servant, Lord, am I;
Thy servant sure, thine handmaid’s son:
my bands thou didst untie.

17 Thank-off ‘rings I to thee will give,
and on God’s name will call.
18 I’ll pay my vows now to the Lord
before his people all;

19 Within the courts of God’s own house,
within the midst of thee,
O city of Jerusalem.
Praise to the Lord give ye.
