Give Ear, God of My Righteousness

  1. Give ear, God of my righteousness,
    my comfort in distress.
    Display your mercy now to me,
    and answer my request.
  2. The glory of my name, O men,
    how long will you despise?
    How long will you delude yourselves,
    still searching after lies?
  3. But know the LORD has set apart
    the godly as his own;
    the LORD will hear me when I call
    and my request make known.
  4. Be angry, yet from sin depart;
    consider and be still.
    Present a righteous sacrifice,
    and wait upon his will.
  5. “O who can show us any good?”
    I hear so many say.
    Now shine your light upon us, LORD;
    reveal your face, we pray.
  6. You filled my heart with greater joy
    than others may have found,
    as they rejoiced at harvest time,
    when grain and wine abound.
  7. In peace, I will lie down and sleep;
    my heart will rest secure,
    for you alone, O gracious LORD,
    will keep me safe and sure.
