I in the temple of my God
Had rather keep a door
Than dwell in tents and rich abode
With sin for evermore.
II For God, the Lord, both sun and shield,
No good from them shall be withheld
12 Lord God of Hosts that reign'st on high,
Who only on Thee doth rely,
I THY land to favour graciously
Thou hast not, Lord, been slack; Thou hast from hard captivity Returned Jacob back.
2 The iniquity Thou didst forgive
3 Thine anger all thou hadst removed,
From Thy fierce wrath, which we had proved
4 God of our saving health and peace,
Turn us, and us restore;
Thine indignation cause to cease
5 Wilt Thou be angry without end,
Wilt Thou Thy frowning ire extend
6 Wilt Thou not turn and hear our voice,
That so Thy people may rejoice,
By Thee preserved alive?
7 Cause us to see Thy goodness, Lord; To us Thy mercy show;
Thy saving health to us afford,
And life in us renew.
8 And now what God the Lord will speak
For to His people He speaks peace,
To His dear saints He will speak peace;
But let them never more Return to folly, but surcease To trespass as before.
9 Surely to such as do Him fear
And glory shall ere long appear
10 Mercy and truth, that long were missed,
Sweet peace and righteousness have kissed,
II Truth from the earth like to a flower
And justice from her heavenly bower
12 The Lord will also then bestow
Our land shall forth in plenty throw
13 Before Him righteousness shall go,
Then will He come, and not be slow;
I THY gracious ear, O Lord, incline;
2 Preserve my soul; for I have trod
3 Pity me, Lord, for daily Thee
Thy servant's soul! for, Lord, to Thee
5 For Thou art good; Thou, Lord, art prone
Art full of mercy, Thou alone,
6 Unto my supplication, Lord,
Thy hearing graciously.
7 I in the day of my distress
For Thou wilt grant me free access,
8 Like Thee among the gods is none,
Of all that other gods have done
Like to Thy glorious works.
9 The nations all whom Thou hast made Shall come, and all shall frame
To bow them low before Thee, Lord,
And glorify Thy name.
10 For great Thou art, and wonders great
Thou in thy everlasting seat
11 Teach me, O Lord, Thy way most right; I in Thy truth will bide;
To fear Thy name my heart unite ;
So shall it never slide.
12 Thee will I praise, O Lord my God, Thee honour and adore
With my whole heart, and blaze abroad
Thy name for evermore.
13 For great Thy mercy is toward me,
14 O God, the proud against me rise,
To seek my life, and in their eyes
15 But Thou, Lord, art the God most mild,
16 Oh turn to me Thy face at length, And me have mercy on;
Unto Thy servant give Thy strength.
And save Thy handmaid's son.
17 Some sign of good to me afford,
And be ashamed, because Thou, Lord,
