Melody and most harmony by Neill Dougall, 1776-1862 Clarke's Parochial Psalmody, 2nd ed., 1831
1 I LOVE the Lord, because my voice
And prayers he did hear.
2 I, while I live, will call on him,
Who bowed to me his ear.
3 The cords of death on every side
Encompassed me around;
The sorrows of the grave me seized,
I grief and trouble found.
4 Then on the Lord's name did I call,
And unto him did say,
Deliver thou my soul, O Lord,
I do thee humbly pray.
5 Our God is very merciful,
Gracious and just the Lord:
6 He saves the meek: I was brought low,
He did me help afford.
7 O thou my soul, do thou return
Unto thy quiet rest;
For largely unto thee the Lord
His bounty hath expressed.
8 For my distressed soul from death
Delivered was by thee;
Thou didst my mourning eyes from tears,
My feet from falling, free.
9 I in the land of those that live
Will walk the Lord before.
10 I did believe, I therefore spake:
I was afflicted sore.
1l I said, when I was in my haste,
That all men liars be.
12 What shall I render to the Lord
For all his gifts to me?
13 I'll of salvation take the cup,
And on the Lord's name call;
14 I'll pay my vows unto the Lord
Before his people all.
15 Dear in his sight is his saints' death.
16 Thy servant, Lord, am I;
Thy servant sure, thine handmaid's son;
My bands thou didst untie.
17 Thank-offerings I to thee will give,
And on the Lord's name call.
18 I'll pay my vows now to the Lord
Before his people all,
19 Within the courts of the Lord's house,
Within the midst of thee,
O city of Jerusalem.
Praise to the Lord give ye.
