I love the Lord because he heard My voice and earnest plea

Representative Text

1 I love the Lord, because he heard
my voice and earnest plea;
and while I live I'll call on him
who turned his ear to me.

2 The snares of death encompassed me,
hell had me in its grasp;
by grief and sorrow I was held,
no comfort could I clasp.

3 I called upon the name of God,
I called, and called again,
'Deliver now my soul, O Lord,
deliver me from pain.'

4 The Lord is gracious. God is good
and shows unfailing care.
God saves the meek: I was brought low;
he raised me from despair.

5 Be still, my soul, be calm again,
resume your quiet rest;
for God has kindly dealt with you,
his generous love expressed.
