O LORD, REGARD ME WHEN I CRY
O Lord, regard me when I cry,
In mercy hear me when I speak;
Thou bidst me seek Thy face, and I
O Lord, with willing heart reply,
Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
My heart had failed in fear and woe
Unless in God I had believed,
Assured that He would mercy show
And that my life His grace should know;
Nor was my hope deceived.
Jehovah, guide me in Thy way,
And lead me in the path of right;
Give me not up unto my foes,
That rise to multiply woes
With false and cruel might.
Fear not, though succor be delayed,
Still wait for God, and He will hear;
Be strong, nor be Thy heart dismayed,
Wait, and the Lord shall bring Thee aid,
Yea, trust and never fear.
