Melody from Barton's The Psalmes of David in Metre, Dublin, 1706 (later form)
1 AGAINST a wicked race, O God,
Plead thou my cause, judge me;
From the unjust and crafty man
O do thou set me free.
2 For thou the God art of my strength;
Why thrust me then away?
And for the oppression of the foe
Why mourn I all the day?
3 O send thy light forth and thy truth;
Let them be guides to me,
And bring me to thine holy hill,
Even where thy dwellings be.
4 Then will I to God's altar go,
To God my chiefest joy:
Yea, God, my God, thy name to praise
My harp I will employ.
5 Why art thou then cast down, my soul?
What should discourage thee?
And why with vexing thoughts art thou
Disquieted in me?
Still trust in God; for him to praise
Good cause I yet shall have:
He of my countenance is the health,
My God that doth me save.
