1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
Against a godless race;
From men deceitful and unjust
Deliver in Thy grace,
Deliver in Thy grace.
2 O Thou the God of all my strength,
Why hast Thou cast me off?
Why go I mourning all the day,
While foes oppress and scoff,
While foes oppress and scoff?
3 O send Thou forth Thy light and truth,
Let them be guides to me,
And bring me to Thy holy hill,
Thy dwelling-place to see,
Thy dwelling-place to see.
4 Then will I to God's altar go,
To God, my boundless joy;
Yea, God, my God, Thy Name to praise
My harp I will employ,
My harp I will employ.
5 Why art thou then cast down, my soul,
What should discourage thee?
And why with vexing thoughts art thou
Disquieted in me,
Disquieted in me?
6 Hope thou in God; His praise shall yet
My thankful lips employ;
He is the spring of all my health,
My God, my boundless joy,
My God, my boundless joy.
