Psalm 143 - 1st Version
EVAN | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
William H. Havergal, 1793-1870
1 LORD, hear my prayer, regard my cries;
And in thy faithfulness
Give thou an answer unto me,
And in thy righteousness.
2 Thy servant also bring thou not
In judgment to be tried;
Because no living man can be
In thy sight justified.
3 Because the foe pursues my soul,
My life to earth doth tread;
In darkness he hath made me dwell,
As those that are long dead.
4 My spirit, then, is overwhelmed
With sore perplexity;
Within me is my very heart
5 I call to mind the days of old,
I think upon thy deeds;
On all the work I meditate
Which from thy hand proceeds.
6 My hands to thee I stretch; my soul
Thirsts as dry land for thee.
7 Haste, Lord, to hear, my spirit fails:
Hide not thy face from me;
Lest like to them I do become
That go down to the dust.
8 At morn let me thy kindness hear;
For in thee do I trust.
Teach me the way that I should walk:
I lift my soul to thee.
9 Lord, free me from my foes; I flee
To thee to cover me.
10 Because thou art my God, to do
Thy will do me instruct;
Good is thy Spirit, in a land
That plain is me conduct.
11 Revive and quicken me, O Lord,
Even for thine own name's sake;
And do thou, in thy righteousness,
My soul from trouble take.
12 And of thy mercy slay my foes;
Let all destroyed be
That do afflict my soul: for I
A servant am to thee.
