God save me for thy holy Name and for




God, save me for thy holy Name,
and for thy goodness' sake:
Unto the strength, Lord, of the same,
I do my cause betake.


Regard, O Lord, and give an ear
to me when I do pray;
Bow down thyself to me, and hear
the words that I do say:


For strangers up against me rise,
and tyrants vex me still,
Who have not God before their eyes,
that seek my soul to spill.


But lo, my God doth give me aid,
the Lord is nigh at hand;
With them by whom my soul is stayed
the Lord doth ever stand.


With plagues repay again all those
for me that lie in wait,
And in thy truth destroy my foes
with their own snare and bait.


An off'ring of free heart and will
then I to thee shall make,
And praise thy Name, for therein still
great comfort I do take.


Thou, Lord, at length hast set me free
from them that craft conspire,
And now my eye with joy doth see
on them my heart's desire.
