Bow down thine ear, O Lord, and hear,
For I am poor and great my need;
Preserve my soul, for thee I fear;
O God, thy trusting servant heed.
O Lord, be merciful to me,
For all the day to thee I cry;
Rejoice thy servant, for to thee
I lift my soul, O Lord most high.
For thou, O Lord, art good and kind,
And ready to forgive thou art;
Abundant mercy they shall find
Who call on thee with all their heart.
O Lord, incline thine ear to me,
My voice of supplication heed,
In trouble I will cry to thee,
For thou wilt answer when I plead.
There is no God but thee alone,
Nor works like thine, O Lord most high,
All nations shall surround thy throne
And their Creator glorify.
In all thy deeds how great thou art!
Thou one true God, thy way make clear;
Teach me with undivided heart
To trust thy truth, thy Name to fear.
