Melody by SAMUEL WEBBE, the elder, 1740-1816 An Essay on the Church Plain-Chant, 1782
1 TO thee, Jehovah, will I cry,
My rock; O, be not silent now!
Lest, if thou hold thy peace, I be
Like those who in the pit lie low.
2 O, hear my supplication's voice,
When unto thee for help I cry,
When to thy holy oracle
I lift my pleading hands on high.
3 O, with the wicked draw me not
Away, nor with the men of sin;
Who to their neighbours speak of peace,
But evil is their heart within.
4 Give them according to their deed,
Their evil doings all reward;
Give them according to their works,
Return them their desert, O Lord.
5 Since they Jehovah's mighty acts,
And doings of his hands disdain,
He will destroy them in his wrath,
And never build them up again.
6 Blest be Jehovah! He hath heard
My supplication's voice in heaven;
Jehovah is my strength and shield;
I trusted him, he help hath given.
7 And therefore shall my heart exult,
My song shall of his praises be.
He is their strength; the saving strength
Of his anointed one is he.
8 O, save the nation of thy love,
O, bless thy chosen heritage;
Feed them and lead them as a flock,
Lift thou them up from age to age.
