Prayer and Protection

2 With the morning light, O Lord, 3 O let all that trust Thy care
Thou shalt hear my voice arise, Everglad and joyful be;
And expectant I will bring Let them joy who love Thy Name,
Prayer as morning sacrifice. Safely guarded, Lord, by Thee.

4 For a blessing from Thy store
To the righteous Thou wilt yield;
Thou wilt compass him about

With Thy favor as a shield. 12 Divine Chastisement PSALM 6 8s and 7s ZENO Alexander B. Morton

2 Come, O Lord, my soul deliver,
In Thy loving-kindness save.
Shall the dead Thy Name remember? -
Who shall praise Thee in the grave?

3 Pity, Lord, my sad condition;
I am weary and distressed;
Many adversaries vex me,
Weeping, I can find no rest.

4 Now the foes that seek to harm me,
Quickly put to shame, shall flee,
For the Lord hath heard my weeping,
And He will regard my plea.

13 Confidence in Divine Justice

PSALM 7 I Is PAULINA Arranged from Donizetti

2. When wronged without cause I have kindness returned;
But if I my neighbor maltreated and spurned,
My soul let the enemy seize for his prey,
My life and my honor in dust let him lay.

3 O Lord, in Thy wrath stay the rage of my foes;
Awake, and Thy judgment ordained interpose.
Let peoples surround Thee and wait at Thy feet,
While o'er them for judgment Thou takest Thy seat.

4 All nations of men shall be judged by the Lord;
To me, O Jehovah, just judgment accord,
As faithful and righteous in life I have been,
And ever integrity cherished within.

5 Establish the righteous, let evil depart,
For God Who is just tries the thoughts of the heart.
In God for defense I have placed all my trust;
The upright He saves and He judges the just.

6 The Lord with the wicked is wroth every day,
And if they repent not is ready to slay;
By manifold ruin for others prepared
They surely at last shall themselves be ensnared.

2 Moon and stars in shining height 3 With dominion crowned he stands
Nightly tell their Maker's might; O'er the creatures of Thy hands;
When Thy wondrous heavens I scan, All to him subjection yield
Then I know how weak is man. In the sea and air and field.
What is man that he should be Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious Name
Loved and visited by Thee, All Thy wondrous works proclaim;
Raised to an exalted height, Thine the Name of matchless worth,
Crowned with honor in Thy sight? Excellent in all the earth.

4 Thou, Lord, art a refuge for all the oppressed;
All trust Thee who know Thee, and trusting are blest;
For never, O Lord, did Thy mercy forsake
The soul that has sought of Thy grace to partake.

5 Give praise to Jehovah, the mighty deeds tell
Of Him Who has chosen in Zion to dwell,
Of Him to Whom justice and vengeance belong,
Who visits the lowly and overthrows wrong.

6 Behold my affliction, Thy mercy accord,
And back from death's portals restore me, O Lord,
That I in the gates of Thy Zion may raise
My song of salvation and show forth Thy praise.

7 The sins of the nations their ruin have wrought,
Their own evildoing destruction has brought;
In this the Lord's justice eternally stands,
That sinners are snared in the work of their hands.

8 The wicked shall perish, the nations shall fall,
Forgetting their God, Who is God over all;
But God will remember the prayer of the weak,
Most surely fulfilling the hope of the meek.

9 Arise in Thy justice, O Lord, and Thy might,
No longer let sinners prevail in Thy sight;
Great Judge of the nations, in judgment appear
To humble the proud and to teach them Thy fear.
