Hymn/Song Information

To my just plea and sad complaint attend O




To my just plea and sad complaint,
attend, O righteous Lord,
And to my pray'r, as 'tis unfeigned,
a gracious ear afford.


As in thy sight I am approved,
so let my sentence be;
And with impartial eyes, O Lord,
my upright dealing see.


For thou hast searched my heart by day,
and visited by night;
And on the strictest trial found
its secret motions right.


Nor shall thy justice, Lord, alone
my heart's designs acquit;
For I have purposed that my tongue
shall no offence commit.


I know what wicked men would do
their safety to maintain;
But me thy just and mild commands
from bloody paths restrain.


That I may still, in spite of wrongs,
my innocence secure;
O guide me in thy righteous ways,
and make my footsteps sure.


Since heretofore I ne'er in vain
to thee my pray'r addressed;
O now, my God, incline thine ear
to this my just request.


The wonders of thy truth and love
in my defense engage;
Thou, whose right hand preserves thy saints
from their oppressors' rage.
