O God From My Distress Make Haste To Set


O GOD, from my distress,
make haste to set me free:
O LORD, with speed do Thou afford
thy saving help to me.
Let them who seek my soul,
be made to blush with shame;
And with confusion turned back
who make my hurt their aim.

They shall be turned back,
with shame confounded be;
As just recompence to them
for their insulting me.
Let all who seek thy face
be glad and joy in Thee;
Who thy salvation love, say still,
“GOD magnified be.”

But I’m distressed, O GOD:
make haste to me, I pray;
For Thou my help and saviour art,
O LORD, make no delay.
