Original Trinity Hymnal, #565
From Psalm 40:9-11, 16-17
Before thy people I confess
The wonders of thy righteousness;
Thou knowest, Lord, that I have made
Thy great salvation known,
Thy truth and faithfulness displayed,
Thy lovingkindness shown.
Withhold not thou thy grace from me,
O Lord, thy mercy let me see,
To me thy lovingkindness show,
Thy truth be still my stay;
Let them preserve me where I go,
And keep me ev'ry day.
Let all who seek to see thy face
Be glad and joyful in thy grace;
Let those who thy salvation love
O praise the Lord who dwells above,
And magnify his name.
Although I poor and needy be,
The Lord in love takes thought for me;
Thou art my help in time of need,
My Saviour, Lord, art thou;
Then, O my God, I pray, I plead:
Stay not, but save me now.
