Psalm 43 T.S.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 Judge and defend my cause, O Lord, 'gainst them that evil be ; From wicked and deceitful men, O Lord, deliver me.
2 For of my strength thou art the God; why am I put from thee? Why walk I heavily, whilst that my foe oppresseth me?
3 O Lord, send out thy light and truth, and lead me with thy grace, Which may conduct me to thy hill, and to thy dwelling-place.
4 Then shall I to thy altar go, with joy to worship there; And on my harp give thanks to thee, O God, my God most dear.
5 Why art thou then so sad, my soul, and frett'st thus in my breast? Still trust in God, for him to praise I hold it always best.
6 By him I have deliverance from all my pain and grief;. He is my God, who doth alway at need send me relief.
