Psalter number 234. Devout Prayers and Pleas - Psalm 86

1. O Lord my God, my joyful heart

Will give Thee praise forevermore,

For rich in grace to me Thou art,

My soul from death Thou didst restore.


2. O God, the proud against me rise,

The wicked who delight in strife;

They set not Thee before their eyes,

They seek to take away my life.


3. In Thee, O Lord, all grace is found,

Thy people shall Thy mercy know;

Thy truth and goodness still abound,

To wrath and anger Thou art slow.


4. In mercy turn and look on me,

Thy servant true, Thy chosen one;

Let me Thy great salvation see,

And strengthen me my course to run.


5. Some token of Thy love bestow,

Which they who hate me now may see;

Let all, O Lord, be brought to know

That Thou dost help and comfort me.
