1 O God, be merciful to me,
For men no mercy show;
With constant warfare pressing me
They seek my overthrow.
2 When foes invade, I safely rest,
Confiding in thy word;
I will not dread what man can do,
My trust is in the Lord.
3 I take Thy vows upon me now,
O God, Who savest me;
the sacrifice of praise I bring
In gratitude to Thee.
4 My feet from falling and my soul
From death Thy hast restored,
And ever in the light of life
I walk before the Lord.
