Hymn/Song Information

Even so do I depart away as doth




E'en so do l depart away,
as doth declining shade;
And as the grasshopper, so I
am shaken off and fade.


With fasting long from needful food
my knees enfeebled are,
And all the fatness of my flesh
is gone with grief and care.


And I also a vile reproach
to them am made to be,
And they that did upon me look,
did shake their heads at me.


Help me therefore, O God, I pray,
my aid and succor be;
According to thy mercies great
save and deliver me.


And they shall know thereby, that this
is thy most mighty hand,
And that 'tis thou that hast it done
they welt shall understand,


Although they curse with spite, yet thou
shalt bless with loving voice
When they rose up, and come to shame,
thy servant shall rejoice.


Let them with shame be cloth-ed all
that are mine enemies,
And with confusion as a cloak
be coverèd likewise.


But greatly I will with my mouth
give thanks unto the Lord,
And I among the multitude
his praises will record,


For he with help at his right hand
will stand the poor man by,
To save him from the man that would
condemn his soul to die.
