Full Text

1 My griefs of heart abound,
Relieve my sore distress,
See my affliction and my pain,
Forgive my sinfulness.

2 Consider Thou my foes,
So many and so bold,
For cruel is the hatred, Lord,
Which they against me hold.

3 Defend, and keep my soul,
From foes deliver me,
And let me not be brought to shame:
I put my trust in Thee.

4 Be truth and right my shield,
Because I wait for Thee;
Thy Church, O God, do Thou redeem
From all adversity.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
