My Lord my God in all distress my hope




My Lord, my God, in all distress
my hope is whole, in thee;
Then let no shame my soul oppress,
nor once take hold on me.


As thou art just, defend me, Lord,
and rid me out of dread;
Give ear, and to my suit accord,
and send me help at need,


Be thou my rock, to whom I may
for aid all times resort:
Thy promise is to help alway,
thou art my fence and fort.


Save me, my God, from, winked men,
and from their strength and pow'r;
From folk unjust, and also them
that cruelly devour.


Thou art my stay whereon I rest,
thou, Lord of hosts, art he;
E'en from my youth I thought it best
still to depend on thee.


Thou hast me kept e'en from my birth,
and I through thee was born;
Wherefore I will thee praise with mirth
both ev'ning and at morn.


As to a monster seldom seen
much folk about me throng;
But thou art now and still hast been,
my fence and aid most strong.


Wherefore; my mouth for ever shall
be fillèd with thy praise,
Also my tongue shall never fail
To honor thee always.


Refuse me not, O Lord, I pray,
when age my limbs doth take,
And when my strength doth waste away,
do not my soul forsake.


Among themselves my foes inquire
to take me through deceit;
And they against me do conspire
that for my soul lay wait.
