O Hear My Prayer, LORD

  1. O hear my prayer, LORD;
    my cry for mercy heed.
    In righteousness and truth
    draw near to meet my need.
    And do not judge me in your sight,
    for in your presence none is right.
  2. The foe has hounded me
    and crushed me to the ground,
    in darkness made me dwell,
    like those in death long bound.
    And so my spirit is afraid;
    my heart within me is dismayed.
  3. I call to mind, O LORD,
    the days and years long gone;
    I ponder all your works
    and what your hands have done.
    To you in prayer I stretch my hands;
    for you I thirst, like arid lands.
  4. My spirit fails, O LORD;
    come quickly to my side.
    Hide not from me your face,
    lest to the pit I slide.
    Let morning bring your love anew,
    for I have put my trust in you.
  5. To you I lift my soul;
    show me the way to go.
    I hide myself in you; LORD,
    save me from my foe.
    Teach me, my God, to do your will;
    may your good Spirit lead me still.
  6. O LORD, for your name’s sake
    revive my waning life;
    in righteousness redeem
    my soul from painful strife.
    In love, destroy my enemies,
    because I serve you faithfully.
