Psalm 43

Words: The Bay Psalm Book

Common Metre Tunes

 1  Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
       from nation merciless
    from the guileful and man unjust,
       O send thou me redress.

 2  For of my strength thou art the God,
       why cast's thou me thee fro;
    why go I mourning for the sore
       oppression of the foe?

 3  Thy light o send out and thy truth,
       let them lead and bring me
    unto thy holy hill, and where
       thy tabernacles be.

 4  Then will I to God's altar go,
       to God my joy's gladness:
    upon the harp o God my God
       I will thy praise express.

 5  My soul O wherefore dost thou bow
       thy self down heavily;
    and wherefore in me makest thou
       a stir tumultuously?

    Hope thou in God, because I shall
       with praise him yet advance:
    who is my God, also he is
       health of my countenance.
