Save Me, O God, By Thy Great Name
Words: Psalm 54, The Presbyterian Psalter of 1997 (alt).
1 Save me, O God, by thy great name, and judge me by thy strength: My prayer hear, and to my words O God give ear to me. For they that strangers are to me do up against me rise; Oppressors do not care for God but seek to take my life. 2 The mighty God my helper is, lo, therefore I am bold: He taketh part with ev'ry one that does my soul uphold. To all my watchful foes he will their evil deeds repay: O for thy truth's sake cut them off, and take them all away. 3 A free-will off'ring I to Thee will bring in sacrifice; Lord, of thy name, for it is good, thy praises will I sing Because he hath delivered me from all adversities; And his desire mine eye hath seen upon mine enemies.
