Damon's Psalter, The Booke of the Musicke, 1591 Rhythm as in Scottish Psalter, 1615
1 IN thy great indignation, Lord,
Do thou rebuke me not;
Nor on me lay thy chastening hand,
In thy displeasure hot.
2 For in me fast thine arrows stick,
Thine hand doth press me sore:
3 And in my flesh there is no health,
Nor soundness any more.
This grief I have, because thy wrath
Is forth against me gone;
And in my bones there is no rest,
For sin that I have done.
4 Because gone o'er mine head my sins
And my transgressions be;
And, as a weighty burden, they
Too heavy are for me.
5 My wounds corrupt and noisome are;
My folly makes it so.
6 I troubled am, and much bowed down;
All day I mourning go.
7 For a disease that loathsome is
So fills my loins with pain,
That in my weak and weary flesh
No soundness doth remain.
8 So very feeble and infirm,
And sorely crushed am I,
That, through disquiet of my heart,
I make loud moan and cry.
9 O Lord, before thine eyes is all
That is desired by me:
And of my heart the secret groans
Not hidden are from thee.
10 My heart doth pant incessantly,
My strength doth quite decay:
As for mine eyes, their wonted light
Is from me gone away.
11 My lovers and my friends do stand
Far distant from my sore;
And those do stand aloof that were
Kinsmen and kind before.
12 Yea, they that seek my life lay snares;
Who seek to do me wrong
Speak mischief, and deceitful things
Imagine all day long.
13 But, as one deaf that heareth not,
I suffered all to pass;
I as a dumb man did become,
Whose mouth not opened was:
14 As one that hears not, in whose mouth
Are no reproofs at all.
15 For, Lord, I hope in thee; my God,
Thou'lt hear me when I call.
16 For I said, Hear me, lest they should
Rejoice o'er me with pride;
And o'er me magnify themselves,
What time my foot doth slide.
17 Because I ready am to halt,
My grief I ever see:
18 For I'll declare my sin, and grieve
For mine iniquity.
19 But yet my foes are full of life,
And strong are they beside;
And they that hate me wrongfully
Are greatly multiplied.
20 And they for good that render ill
As enemies me withstood;
Yea, even for this, because that I
Do follow what is good.
21 Forsake me not, O Lord; my God,
Far from me never be.
22 O Lord, thou my salvation art,
Haste to give help to me.
