32b. Exaudi Deus

1 Regard O Lord for I complaine,
and make my suit to thee:
Let not my words return in vaine,
but give an eare to me.
2 From out the coasts and utmost parts
of all the earth abroad:
In grief and anguish of my heart,
I cry to thee O God.

3 Upon the rock of thy great power
my woful mind repose:
Thou art my hope, my fort, and tower,
my fence against my foes.
4 Within thy tent I luzf to dwell,
for ever to endure:
Under thy wings I know right well,
I shall be safe and sure.

5 The Lord doth my desire regard,
and doth fulfill the same:
With goodly gifts will he reward
all those that feare his Name.
6 The King shall he in health maintaine,
and so prolong his daies,
That he from age to age may raigne
with royall state alwaies.

7 That he may have a dwelling place
before the Lord for aye:
O let thy mercy, truth and grace
defend them from decay.
8 Then shall I sing for ever still,
with praise unto thy Name:
That all my vowes I may fulfill,
and daily pay the same.
