Author: Adam Reusner; Catherine Winkworth Hymnal: Christian Worship #31D (2021) Meter: 188.8.131.52.4.7 Scripture: Psalm 31 Lyrics: 1 I trust, O LORD, your holy name;
O let me not be put to shame
nor let me be confounded.
My faith, O LORD,
be in your Word
forever firmly grounded.
2 Bow down your gracious ear to me
and hear my cry, my prayer, my plea;
make haste for my protection,
for woes and fear
surround me here.
Help me in my affliction.
3 You are my strength, my shield, my rock,
my fortress strong against each shock,
my help, my life, my tower,
my battle sword,
who can resist your power?
4 With you, O LORD, I cast my lot;
O faithful God, forsake me not,
to you my soul commending.
Lord, be my stay,
and lead the way
now and when life is ending.
5 All honor, praise, and majesty
to Father, Son, and Spirit be,
our God forever glorious,
in whose rich grace
we run our race
till we depart victorious.
