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.
Yea, may none be put to shame,
None who wait for Thee to bless;
But dishonored be their name
Who without a cause transgress.

2 Lord, to me Thy ways make known,
Guide in truth and teach Thou me;
Thou my Saviour art alone,
All the day I wait for Thee.
Lord, remember in Thy love
All Thy mercies manifold,
Tender mercies from above,
Changeless from the days of old.

3 Sins of youth remember not,
Nor my trespasses record;
Let not mercy be forgot,
For Thy goodness' sake, O Lord.
Just and good the Lord abides
He His way will sinners show
He the meek in justice guides
Making them His way to know.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
