Hymn/Song Information

But as a deaf man I became that cannot




But as a deaf man I became,
that cannot hear at all;
And as one dumb, that opens not
his mouth to speak withal.


For all my confidence, O Lord,
I wholly place in thee;
Therefore, O Lord, who art my God,
do thou give ear to me.


This do I crave, that they my foes
triumph not over me;
For when my foot doth slip, then they
rejoice my fall to see.


And I am ready for to halt,
I cannot stand upright;
Also my grievous heaviness
is ever in my sight.


For while that I my wickedness
in humble wise confess,
And while I for my sinful deeds
my sorrows do express,


My foes do still remain alive,
and mighty are, I know;
And they that hate me wrongfully,
in number largely grow.


They stand against me, that my good
with evil do repay;
Because that good and honest things
I do pursue always.


Forsake me not, O Lord my God,
be thou not far away;
Make haste to help me, O my God,
my safety and my stay.
