Save thou me by thy name O God

Save thou me by thy name O God

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 O save me by thy name, O GOD,
and judge me by thy pow'r:
2 O GOD, now to my pray'r give ear,
and hear in this sad hour.
3 For strangers whom I never wrong'd,
yet up against me rise:
My soul, oppressors seek, who GOD
set not before their eyes. (Selah.)

4 Lo GOD my help; the Lord with those
who do my soul sustain:
5 My foes he'll justly recompence,
Them in thy truth restrain.
6 Then I to Thee shall sacrifice
With grateful willingness:
Yea LORD, because 'tis good, I will
with praise thy name confess.

7 For thou hast me delivered
from all adversities;
And may mine eyes see my desire
upon mine enemies.
