Hymn/Song Information

My trouble and affliction Lord consider

My trouble and affliction, Lord,
consider and behold;
Deliver me, for of thy law
I ever take fast hold.

Defend my good and righteous cause,
with speed some succor send;
From death, as thou hast promisèd,
Lord, ever me defend.

As for the wicked, they are far
from saving health and grace;
Because the way thy laws to know
they enter not the trace.

Great are thy mercies, Lord, I grant;
what tongue can them explain?
According to thy judgments good
let me my life obtain.

Though many men did trouble me,
and persecute me sore,
Yet from thy laws I never shrunk,
nor went aside therefore.

The great transgressors I behold,
which is a grief to me,
Because they do not keep thy word,
nor ever seek to thee.

Behold how I do love thy laws
with a most upright heart!
Then quicken me, O Lord, for thou
most good and gracious art.

Thy word from the beginning hath
been ever true and just,
Thy righteous judgments ev'ry one
always continue must.
