Hymn/Song Information

I waited long and sought the Lord and




I waited long and sought the Lord,
and patiently did bear;
At length he did to me accord
my voice and cry to hear.


He brought me from the dreadful pit,
out of the mire and clay:
Upon a rock he set my feet,
and he did guide my way.


To me he taught a psalm of praise,
which I must shew abroad,
And sing new songs of thanks always
unto the Lord our God.


When all the folk these things shall see,
as people much afraid,
Then they unto the Lord will flee,
and trust upon his aid.


Blessèd is he whose hope and heart
doth in the Lord remain,
That with the proud doth take no part,
nor such as lies maintain.


For, Lord my God, thy wond'rous deeds
in greatness far do pass:
Thy favor to-wards us exceeds
all things that ever was.


When I intend and do devise
thy works abroad to show,
To such a reck'ning they do rise,
thereof no end I know.


Burnt off'rings thou delight'st not in,
I know thy whole desire;
With sacrifice to purge his sin,
thou dost no man require.


Meat offerings and sacrifice
thou would'st not have at all;
But thou, O Lord, hast open made
my ears to hear withal.


But then, said I, behold, and look,
I come with heart most free;
For in the volume of the book
Thus it is said of me;


That I, O God, should do thy mind
which thing doth please me well;
For in my heart thy law I find
fast placèd there to dwell.


Thy righteousness and justice I
in great assemblies tell;
Behold, my tongue no time doth cease,
O Lord, thou knowest well.
