Hear Me, O LORD, and Answer Me
- Hear me, O LORD, and answer me;
for I am needy, I am poor.
Safeguard your godly servant’s life;
save me, my God, I trust in you.
- All day I cry to you, O Lord,
show me your grace, be merciful.
Gladden your servant’s soul, O Lord,
for unto you I lift my soul.
- For you, O Lord, alone are good;
ready and willing to forgive.
All those who call upon your name
you will abundant mercy give.
- Listen, O LORD, and heed my pray’r;
hear now my plea for grace, my cry.
In my distress I call on you,
for in your mercy you reply.
- Surely among the many gods,
Lord, there is none to rival you;
deeds that the others may perform
never compare with works you do.
- All of the nations you have made
Lord, they will come and laud your name.
There is no God but you alone;
great are your deeds and great your fame.
- Teach me, O LORD, your way, that I
from your great truth may not depart;
so I might always fear your name,
give me an undivided heart.
- I will, O LORD, with all my heart
give you my thanks unceasingly.
Great is your steadfast love to me;
from Sheol’s depths you rescue me.
- Insolent men attack me, God,
men strong and ruthless, men of strife;
they do not seek your face, O God,
but seek to take away my life.
- You, Lord, are merciful and kind,
slow to show anger, rich in grace;
you, God, abound in steadfast love;
great is your truth and faithfulness.
- Turn now your face to me, O Lord,
and unto me your mercy show;
rescue your lowly handmaid’s son,
unto your servant strength bestow.
- Grant me a sign of favor, LORD,
which those who hate me now may see;
surely they will be put to shame,
for you have helped to comfort me.
