P.XLIII. Judge me, O God, and plead my cause

1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
Against a sinful race;
From vile oppression and deceit
Secure me by thy grace.

2 On thee my steadfast hope depends,
And am I left to mourn?
To sink in sorrows, and in vain
Implore thy kind return?

3 O send thy light to guide my feet,
And bid thy truth appear,
Conduct me to thy holy hill
And taste thy mercies there.

4 Then to thy altar, O my God,
My joyful feet shall rise,
And my triumphant songs shall praise
The God that rules the skies.

5 Sink not my soul, beneath thy fear,
Nor yield to weak despair:
For I shall live to praise the Lord,
And bless his guardian care.
