Psalm 43

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

   1  Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
         against th' ungodly nation;
      From the unjust and crafty man,
         O be thou my salvation.
   2  For thou the God art of my strength;
         why thrusts thou me thee fro'?
      For th' enemy's oppression
         why do I mourning go?
   3  O send thy light forth and thy truth;
         let them be guides to me,
      And bring me to thine holy hill,
         ev'n where thy dwellings be.
   4  Then will I to God's altar go,
         to God my chiefest joy:
      Yea, God, my God, thy name to praise
         my harp I will employ.
   5  Why art thou then cast down, my soul?
         what should discourage thee?
      And why with vexing thoughts art thou
         disquieted in me?
      Still trust in God; for him to praise
         good cause I yet shall have:
      He of my count'nance is the health,
         my God that doth me save.
