Hymn/Song Information

Save me O God and that with speed




Save me, O God, and that with speed.
because the waters do
So very nigh my soul proceed,
and enter thereinto:


I sink full deep in mire and clay,
where I can feel no ground,
And in deep waters, where I may
most suddenly be drowned.


With crying I am weary, 1o,
my throat is hoarse and dry,
My sight doth fail, looking also
for help to God on high,


My foes that guiltless do oppress
my soul, with hate are led;
In number sure they are no less
than hairs upon my head.


Though for no cause they vex me sore,
they prosper and are glad;
they do compel me to restore
the things I never had.


What I through my simplicity
have done, Lord, thou canst tell;
And all my faults in privacy
to thee are known full well.


O God of hosts, defend and stay
all those that trust in thee;
Let no man doubt or shrink away
for ought that chanceth me.


It is for thee and for thy sake
that I do bear this blame;
In spite to thee they would me make
to hide my face for shame.


My mother's sons, my brethren all,
reject me with disgrace,
And as a stranger they me call,
they will not know my face.


Unto thy house such zeal I bear,
that it doth vex me much,
Their checks and taunts at thee to hear
my very heart doth touch.
