Psalm 70 J.H.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 O God, to me take heed, I help of thee require; O Lord of hosts, with haste and speed help me, I thee desire.
2 With shame confound them all, that seek my soul to spill; Let them be turnèd back and fail, that think and wish me ill.
3 Let them rewarded be with infamy and shame, Who when harm happens unto me, do triumph at the same.
4 But let them joyful be in thee, with joy and wealth Who only trust and seek to thee, and to thy saving health:
5 That they may say always, in mirth and one accord, All glory, honor, land and praise be given to the Lord.
6 But I am weak and poor, come, Lord, thy aid I lack; Thou art my stay and help, therefore make speed, and be not slack.
