Now for thy holy Name O Lord I thee

Now for thy holy Name,
O Lord, I thee entreat
To grant me pardon for my sin,
for it is very great.

Whoso doth fear the Lord,
by him he shall be kept,
To lead his life in such a way
as he doth best accept:

His soul shall evermore
in goodness dwell and stand;
His seed and his posterity
inherit shall the land.

All those that fear the Lord,
know his secret intent;
And unto them he doth declare
his will and testament.

My eyes and thankful heart
to him I will advance,
That plucked my feet out of the snare
Of sin and ignorance.

With mercy me behold,
to thee I make my moan;
For I am poor and desolate,
and comfortless alone.

The troubles of my heart
are multiplied indeed;
Bring me out of this misery,
necessity, and need.

Behold my poverty,
my anguish and my pain:
Remit my sin and my offence,
and make me clean again.

O Lord, behold my foes,
how they do still increase,
Pursuing me with deadly hate,
that fain would live in peace:

Preserve and keep my soul,
and still deliver me;
And let me not be overthrown,
because I trust in thee.

Let truth and uprightness
for ever wait on me,
Because my hope and confidence
have always been in thee.

Deliver, Lord, thy folk,
and send them some relief;
I mean thy chosen Israel,
from all their pain and grief.
