Full Text

1 O God, give ear unto my cry,
And to my voice attend;
Thought far from home and from Thy house,
To Thee my prayers ascend.

2 When troubles overwhelm my heart,
Then Thou wilt hear my cry,
For safety lead me to the Rock
That higher is than I.

3 A refuge Thou hast been for me
When storms of trouble lower;
When foes assail, then Thou hast been
My strong defense and tower.

4 Within Thy holy temple, Lord,
I ever will abide;
Beneath the covert of Thy wings
In confidence I hide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
