Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

Rebuke me not in anger, Lord, Nor cast me quite away

Rebuke me not in anger, Lord, Nor cast me quite away

Full Text

1 Rebuke me not in anger Lord!
Nor cast me quite away,
Nor let me have my just reward,
Have mercy, Lord, I pray.

2 In mercy hear thou my complaint,
O hear my mournful pray'r:
My heart is weak, my soul is faint,
And fill'ed with dread and fear.

3 In death no man rememb'reth thee,
Nor thanks thee in the grace:
In mercy, Lord, deliver me,
And from destruction save.

4 My sorrows and distress of mind,
Are numberless and great;
No peace or comforts can I find,
In this my dismal state.

5 My life is worn with grief and pain,
And all my strength is gone:
O Lord, revive my soul again,
And make thy mercies known.

6 O comfort me in my distress;
On thee my God I call:
Be thou my life and righteousness,
My Saviour and my all.
