Lord, I Lift My Soul to Thee

Representative Text

1 Lord, I lift my soul to thee,
O my God, I trust thy might;
let not foes exult o'er me,
shame me not before their sight.

2 Yea, may none be put to shame,
none who wait for thee to bless;
but dishonored be their name
who without a cause transgress.

3 Lord, to me thy ways make known,
guide in truth and teach thou me;
thou my Savior art alone,
all the day I wait for thee.

4 Lord, remember in thy love
all thy mercies manifold,
tender mercies from above,
changeless from the days of old.

5 Sins of youth remember not,
nor my trespasses record;
let not mercy be forgot,
for thy goodness' sake, O Lord.

6 Just and good the Lord abides,
he his way will sinners show;
he the meek in justice guides,
making them his way to know.

7 Grace and truth shall mark the way
where the Lord his own will lead,
if his word they still obey
and his testimonies heed.

8 For thy name's sake hear thou me;
for thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
pardon my iniquity,
for my sin is very great.

9 He who walks in godly fear
in the path of truth shall go;
peace shall be his portion here,
and his sons all good shall know.
