Representative Text

1 O Lord, my earnest cry
Thy listening ear has heard;
With thy salvation answer me,
And I will keep Thy word.

2 At early dawn I prayed,
Thy promises my trust;
At night I though upon thy word,
Most holy and most just.

3 O hear me in Thy grace,
In mercy quicken me;
The wicked plan to do me harm,
But they are far from Thee.

4 Thou, Lord, art near to me,
And true are Thy commands;
Of old Thy testimonies show
Thy truth eternal stands.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
