Text

Lord, unto thee I make my moan,

When dangers me oppress;

I call, I sigh, complain, and groan,

Trusting to find release.

 

Hearken, O Lord, to my request,

Unto my suit incline,

And let thine ears, O Lord, be pressed

To hear this prayer of mine.

 

O Lord our God, if thou survey

Our sins, and them peruse,

Who shall escape? Or who dare say,

I can myself excuse?

 

In God the Lord I put my trust,

My soul waits on his will;

His promise is for ever just,

And I hope therein still.
