Judge me, O God, and plead my cause With nations merciless

Judge me, O God, and plead my cause With nations merciless

Representative Text

1 Judge me, O GOD, and plead my cause
with nations merciless;
And from the man of guile and wrong,
O send thou me redress.
2 For of my strength Thou art the God:
reject me why dost Thou?
Why go I mourning grievously,
oppressed by the foe?

3 O send thou forth thy light and truth,
let them conduct me near,
And bring me to thy holy hill,
and to thy dwellings there.
4 Then will I to GOD's altar go,
to God my highest joy:
Yea Thee to praise, O GOD, my God,
I will my harp employ.

5 My soul, O wherefore dost thou bow
thy self down heavily?
And wherefore so disquieted,
and troubled art in me?
6 Hope thou in GOD, because I shall
with praise Him yet advance;
Who is my God; He also is
health of my countenance.
