Representative Text

1 O Lord, make haste to hear my cry,
To Thee I call, on Thee rely.
Incline to me a gracious ear,
And when I call, in mercy hear.

2 When in the morning unto Thee
I lift my voice and bring my plea,
Then let my prayer as incense rise
To God enthroned above the skies.

3 When unto Thee I look and pray
With lifted hands at close of day,
Then as the evening sacrifice
Let my request accepted rise.

4 Guard Thou my thoughts, I Thee implore,
And of my lips O keep Thou the door;
Nor leave my sinful heart to stray
Where evil footsteps lead the way.

5 O righteous God, Thy chastisement,
Though sent through foes, in love is sent;
thought grievous it will profit me,
A healing ointment it shall be.

6 While wickedness my foes devise,
To Thee my constant prayer shall rise;
When their injustice is o'erthrown
Mu gentleness shall still be shown.

7 Brought nigh to death and sore distressed,
O Lord, my God, in Thee I rest;
Forsake me not, I look to Thee,
Let me Thy great salvation see.

8 Themselves entangled in their snare,
Their own defeat my foes prepare;
O keep me, Lord, for let me fall,
Protect and lead me safe through all.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
