1 Judge me, God of my salvation,
Plead my cause, for Thee I trust:
Hear my earnest supplication,
Save me from my foes unjust.
O my soul, why art thou grieving?
What disquiets and dismays?
Hope in God, His help receiving,
I shall yet my Saviour praise.
2 On Thy strength alone relying
Why am I cast off by Thee,
In my helpless sorrow sighing,
While the foe oppresses me? [Refrain]
3 Light and truth, my way attending,
Send Thou forth to be my guide,
Till Thy holy mount ascending,
I within Thy house abide. [Refrain]
3 At Thy sacred altar bending,
God, my God, my boundless joy,
Harp and voice, in worship blending,
For Thy praise will I employ. [Refrain]
