1. Ever are my longing eyes
Tow’rd the Lord, Whose watchful care,
When my foes their plots devise,
Keeps my feet from ev’ry snare.
2. Turn to me, Thy grace impart,
I am desolate indeed;
Great the troubles of my heart;
Save Thou me, O Lord, I plead.
3. Look on my afflicted state,
Freely all my sins forgive,
Mark my foes, their cruel hate,
Keep my soul and let me live.
4. Shame me not, I hide in Thee;
Truth and right preserve me still;
Let, O God, Thy people be
No redeemed from ev’ry ill.
