Representative Text

1 To thee I lift my soul;
2 O Lord, I trust in thee:
my God, let me not be ashamed,
nor foes exult o’er me.
3 Let none that wait on thee

5 and do thou lead me in thy truth,
therein my teacher be:
for thou art God that dost

and I upon thee all the day

and loving-kindnesses, for they
have been through ages all.
7 My sins and faults of youth
do thou, O Lord, forget:
after thy mercy think on me,
and for thy goodness great.
