Hymn/Song Information

With my whole heart to God I called Lord

With my whole heart to God I called,
Lord, hear my earnest cry;
And I thy statutes to perform
will all my care apply.

Again more fervently I prayed,
O save me, that I may
Thy testimonies thoroughly know,
and steadfastly obey.

My earlier pray'r the dawning day
prevented, while I cried
To him, on whose engaging word
my hope alone relied.

With zeal have I awaked before
the midnight watch was set,
That I of thy mysterious word
might perfect knowledge get.

Lord, hear my supplicating voice,
and wonted favor show;
O quicken me, and so approve
thy judgments ever true.

My persecuting foes advance,
and hourly nearer draw;
What treatment can I hope from them
who violate thy law?

Though they draw nigh, my comfort is,
thou, Lord, art yet more near;
Thou, whose commands are righteous all,
thy promises sincere.

Concerning thy divine decrees
my soul has known of old,
That they were true, and shall their truth
to endless ages hold.
