Lord I Lift My Soul To Thee O My God I
Lord, I lift my soul to thee,
O my God, I trust thy might;
let not foes exult o’er me,
shame me not before their sight.
Yea, may none be put to shame,
none who wait for thee to bless;
but dishonored be their name
who without a cause transgress.
Lord, to me thy ways make known,
guide in truth and teach thou me;
thou my Savior art alone,
all the day I wait for thee.
Lord, remember in thy love
all thy mercies manifold,
tender mercies from above,
changeless from the days of old.
Sins of youth remember not,
nor my trespasses record;
let not mercy be forgot,
for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.
Just and good the Lord abides,
he his way will sinners show;
he the meek in justice guides,
making them his way to know.
Grace and truth shall mark the way
where the Lord his own will lead,
if his word they still obey
and his testimonies heed.
For thy name’s sake hear thou me;
for thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
pardon my iniquity,
for my sin is very great.
He who walks in godly fear
in the path of truth shall go;
peace shall be his portion here,
and his sons all good shall know.
