Psalter 108

Tune

Return to the Psalter Page

1. I waited for the Lord my God,
Yea patiently drew near,
And He at length inclined to me,
My pleading cry to hear.

2. He took me from destruction’s pit,
From out the miry clay;
He set my feet upon a rock,
And steadfast made my way.

3. A new and joyful song of praise
My thankful heart He taught,
A song of glory to our God
For all that He has wrought.

4. And many who behold how good
The Lord has been to me
Shall learn to fear, and in His Name
Their trust hence forth shall be.

5. O truly blessed is the man
That on the Lord relies,
Shall learn to fear, and in His Name
Their trust henceforth shall be.

6. O Lord my God, how manifold
The works which Thou hast wrought,
Ofttimes Thou hast bestowed on us
Thy care and gracious thought.

7. Thy works and thoughts most wonderful,
If I of them would speak,
Cannot be numbered, and in vain
To set them forth I seek.
