LIFT my soul to God,
My trust is in his name; € Let not my foes that seek my blood
Still triumph in my shame. P 2 Sin, and the pow’rs of hell,
Persuade me to despair: -Lord, make me know thy cov’nant well,
That I may’scape the snare,

Bring thy salvation near; ? When will thy hand release my feet
Out of the deadly snare! P
3 When shall the sov’reign grace
Of my forgiving God
Restore me from those dangerous ways,
My wandering feet have trod! 4 The tumult of my thoughts
Does but enlarge my woe; p My spirit languishes, my heart
Is desolate and low.
Nor put my hope to shame;
In my Redeemer's name, 8 With humble faith I wait,
To see thy face again; o Of Isra'l it shall ne'er be said, d He sought the Lord in vain.
-3 There shall I offer my requests,
And see thy beauty still;
And there inquire thy will. e 4 When troubles rise, and storms ap
There may his children hide; (pear, o God has a strong pavilion, where
He makes my soul abide.
Above my foes around;
