Save me, O God, by thy great name

Representative Text

1 Save me, O God, by thy great name,
and judge me by thy strength:
2 hear thou my prayer, O God; give ear
unto my words at length.
3 For they that strangers are to me
do up against me rise,
oppressors seek my soul, and God
set not before their eyes.

4 Lo, God an helper is to me,
and therefore I am bold;
the Lord hath taken part with those
that do my soul uphold.
5 Unto my foes their wickedness
he surely shall repay:
O for thy truth’s sake cut them off,
and sweep them clean away.

6 I with a willing mind will give
a sacrifice to thee;
thy name, O Lord, because ‘tis good,
shall be extolled by me.
7 Because he hath delivered me
from all adversities;
and its desire mine eye hath seen
upon mine enemies.
