Resolv'd to watch o'er all my Ways

Hymnal: A New Version of the Psalms of David #XXXIX (1760) Hymnal Title: A New Version of the Psalms of David Lyrics: 1 Resolv'd to watch o'er all my Ways, I kept my tongue in Awe; I curb'd my hasty Words, when I the prosp'rous Wicked saw. 2 Like one that's dumb, I silent stood, and did my Tongue refrain From good Discourse; but that Restraint increas'd my inward Pain. 3 My Heart did glow, which working Tho'ts did hot and restless make; And warm Reflections fann'd the Fire, till thus at length I spake: 4 Lord, let me know my Term of Days, how soon my Life will end; The num'rous Train of Ills disclose, which this frail State attend. 5 My Life, Thou know'st, is but a Span; a Cypher sums my Years; And ev'ry Man, in best Estate, but Vanity appears. 6 Man, like a Shadow, vainly walks, with fruitless Cares oppress'd: He heaps up Wealth, but cannot tell by whom 'twill be possess'd. 7 Why then should I on worthless Toys, with anxious Care, attend? On Thee alone my stedfast Hope shall ever, Lord, depend. 8,9 Forgive my Sins; nor let me scorn'd by foolish Sinners be; For I was dumb, and murmur'd not, because 'twas done by Thee. 10 The dreadful Burden of thy Wrath in Mercy soon remove; Lest my frail Flesh too weak to bear the heavy Load should prove. 11 For when thou chast'nest Man for Sin, Thou mak'st his Beauty fade (So vain a Thing is he!) like Cloth by fretting Moths decay'd. 12 Lord, hear my Cry, accept my Tears, and listen to my Pray'r, Who sojourn like a Stranger here, as all my Fathers were. 13 O! spare me yet a little Time; my wasted Strength restore, Before I vanish quite from hence, and shall be seen no more.
