Hymn/Song Information

With fervent heart I called and cried

With fervent heart I called and cried,
now answer me, O Lord,
That thy commandments to observe
I fully may accord.

To thee, my God, I make my suit,
save me, I humbly pray;
Thy testimonies then will I
always keep and obey.

To thee do I cry in the morn
before the day appear;
For in thy word I put my trust,
and thee alone do fear:

My eyes prevent the night-watches,
before they call, I wake,
That meditating on thy word,
I might some comfort take.

Incline thine ear to hear my voice,
and pity on me take;
As thou wast wont, so quicken me,
lest life should me forsake.

My foes draw near, and greedily
do after mischief run;
Far from thy law they are gone back,
and wickedly it shun.

Therefore, O Lord, approach thou near,
since need doth so require;
For all thy precepts are most true,
then help, I thee desire.

Concerning thy commandments I
have learnèd long ago,
That they remain for evermore,
thou hast them grounded so.
