O Lord my God, I do repose

O Lord my God, I do repose

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O Lord my God, I do repose
My confidence in thee:
Form all my persecuting foes
Save and deliver me.
2 Lest like a renting lion he
My soul in pieces tear,
He tears, and to deliver me
There doth not one appear.

3 O Lord, that art a God to me,
If this thing done have I,
And if that in my hands there be
Wrongful iniquity:
4 If ill rewarded him have I
With me who was at peace
(Who causeless was mine enemy,
Yea I did him release.)

5 My soul pursue then let my foe,
Take it, yea tread to clay
My life, and in the dust also
Let him my honor lay:
6 Because mine enemies rage, arise,
Lord, in thy wrath up stand:
Awake thou up for me likewise,
Thou judgment didst command.

7 The peoples congregation so
Shall round encompass thee,
And for the same return do thou
Unto thy place on high.
8 The Lord the peoples judge shall be;
Jehovah judge thou me,
After my righteousness in me,
And mine integrity.


9 Let cease the wicked's malice now,
But the just ratify,
Because, O righteous God, even thou
The hearts and reins doth try.
10 For God my shield, them that are right
In heart, he saved hath.
11 God that doth judge the righteous wight,
God daily kindleth wrath.

12 Unless that turning he repent,
His sword he sharp will whet:
Already he his bow hath bent
And hath it ready set.
13 Thy instruments of death for him
He ready doth prepare:
His arrows ready makes for them
That persecutors are.

14 Behold he shall in travel be
With vain iniquity:
And mischief fore conceived hat he
But shall bring forth a lie.
15 A pit he digged hath likewise,
He delved deep the same,
But fallen into the ditch he is
That he himself did frame.

16 His own mischievous travel shall
Upon his head turn down;
His dealing violent shall fall
Likewise upon his crown.
17 According to his righteousness
Jehovah praise will I;
And to his name a Psalm address,
Who is the Lord most high.
