Lord, the God of My Salvation

Representative Text

1 LORD, the God of my salvation,
day and night I cry to Thee;
let my prayer now find acceptance,
in Thy mercy answer me.
Full of troubles and affliction,
nigh to death my soul is brought
helpless, like one cast forever
from Thy care and from Thy thought.

2 Thou hast brought me down to darkness,
'neath Thy wrath I am oppressed;
all the billows of affliction
overwhelm my soul distressed.
Thou hast made my friends despise me,
and companionless I go,
bound, and helpless in my bondage,
pining in my bitter woe.

3 Unto Thee with hands uplifted
daily I direct my cry;
hear, O LORD, my supplication,
hear and save me ere I die.
Wilt Thou wait to show Thy wonders
and Thy mercy to the dead?
Let me live to tell Thy praises,
by Thy lovingkindness led.
