Lord, unto thee I make my moan,
When dangers me oppress;
I call, I sigh, complain, and groan,
Trusting to find release.
Hearken, O Lord, to my request,
Unto my suit incline,
And let thine ears, O Lord, be pressed
To hear this prayer of mine.
O Lord our God, if thou survey
Our sins, and them peruse,
Who shall escape? Or who dare say,
I can myself excuse?
In God the Lord I put my trust,
My soul waits on his will;
His promise is for ever just,
And I hope therein still.
