1 To my complaint, O Lord my God,
Thy gracious ear incline;
Hear me, distress'd and destitute
Of all relief but thine.
2 Do thou, O God, preserve my soul,
that does thy Name adore;
Thy servant keep, and him, whose trust
Relies on thee, restore.
3 To me, who daily thee invoke,
Thy Mercy, Lord, extend;
Refresh thy servant's soul, whose hopes
On thee alone depend.
4 Thou, Lord, art good, nor only good,
But prompt to pardon too;
Of plenteous mercy to all those
Who for thy mercy sue.
5 Therefore, their great Creator, thee,
The nations shall adore;
Their long-misguided pray'rs and praise
To thy bless'd name restore.
6 All shall confess thee great, and great
The wonders thou hast done;
Confess thee God, thee God supreme,
Confess thee God alone.Source: A Selection of Psalms with occasional hymns (Charleston hymnal) #P.XXI
