1 Regard my grief and rescue me,
For I do not forget Thy laws;
As Thou hast promised, save me Lord;
Redeem my soul, and plead my cause.
2 Far is salvation from the men
Who do not seek Thy statues, Lord;
Great are Thy mercies, quicken me
According to Thy holy word.
3 I bear the spit of many foes,
Yet from Thy law I do not swerve;
I saw the faithless and was grieved,
For they Thy word do not observe.
4 Behold how I Thy precepts love!
In kindness Lord, revive Thou me;
The sum of all Thy word is truth,
Thy word abides eternally.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
