1 To Thee, great God, I make my prayer;
Do Thou my supplications hear;
Let me not sink, o’erwhelmed in grief,
But kindly send my soul relief.

2 O let me now Thy goodness prove,
Thy tender mercies, and Thy love;
Turn not away, O Lord, Thy face,
But hear, and heal me with Thy grace.

3 So shall my song to Thee arise,
Thy praise shall echo through the skies;
Through all the earth will I proclaim
The greatness of Jehovah’s name.
