Hymn/Song Information

O God thou art my righteousness Lord




O God, thou art my righteousness,
Lord, hear me when I call:
Thou hast set me at liberty,
when I was bound in thrall:


Have mercy, Lord, therefore on me,
and grant me my request;
For unto thee incessantly
to cry I will not rest.


O mortal men, how long will ye
my glory thus despise?
Why wander ye in vanity,
and follow after lies?


Know ye that good and godly men
the Lord doth take and choose;
And when to him I make complaint,
he doth me not refuse.


Sin not, but stand in awe therefore,
examine well your heart;
And in your chamber quietly
see yourselves convert.


Offer to God the sacrifice
of righteousness and praise;
And look that in the living Lord
ye put your trust always.


The greater sort crave worldly goods
and riches do embrace;
But, Lord, grant us thy countenance,
thy favor and thy grace:


For thou thereby shalt make my heart
more joyful and more glad,
Than they that of their corn and wine
full great increase have had.


In peace therefore lie down will I,
taking my rest and sleep;
For thou only dost me, O Lord,
preserve and safely keep.
