Hymn/Song Information

Cast me not Lord out from thy sight but




Cast me not Lord, out from thy sight,
but speedily my torments end;
Take not from me thy Holy Spirt,
which may from dangers me defend,


Restore me to those joys again,
which I was wont in thee to find;
Let me thy free: Spirit retain,
which unto thee may draw my mind.


Thus when I shall thy mercies know,
I shall instruct others therein;
And men that are likewise brought low
by my example shall flee sin.


O God, that of my health art Lord,
forgive me this my bloody vice;
My heart and tongue shall, then accord
to sing thy mercy and justice.


Touch thou my lips, my tongue untie,
O Lord, I do thee humbly pray;
And then my mouth shall testify
thy praise and wondrous works alway.


And as for outward sacrifice,
I would have offered many one;
But thou esteem'st them of no price,
and therein pleasure takest none.


The heavy heart, the mind oppressed
O Lord, thou never dost reject;
This sacrifice indeed is blest
and that thou chiefly dost expect.


Lord, unto Zion turn thy face,
pour out thy mercies on thy hill,
And on Jerusalem thy grace,
build up the wall, and love it still.


Thou shalt accept then our off'rings
of peace and righteousness always,
Yea, calves and many other things
upon thy altar we will lay.
