Psalm 28 - 1st Version
GLOUCESTER | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Ravenscroft's Psalter, 1621
1 To thee I'll cry, O Lord, my rock;
Hold not thy peace to me;
Lest like those who to death go down
I by thy silence be.
2 The voice hear of my humble prayers,
When unto thee I cry;
When to thy holy oracle
I lift my hands on high.
3 With ill men draw me not away
That work iniquity;
That speak peace to their friends, while in
Their hearts doth mischief lie.
4 Give them according to their deeds,
And evil of their way;
After the work of their own hands
Do thou to them repay.
5 God shall not build, but them destroy,
Who would not understand
The Lord's own works, nor did regard
The doing of his hand.
6 For ever blessed be the Lord,
For graciously he heard
The voice of my petitions, and
My prayers did regard.
7 The Lord's my strength and shield; my heart
Upon him did rely;
And I am helped: hence my heart
Doth joy exceedingly;
And with my song I will him praise.
8 Their strength is God alone:
He also is the saving strength
Of his anointed one.
9 O thine own people do thou save.
Bless thine inheritance;
Them also do thou feed, and them
For evermore advance.
