Psalm 25

Second Version (C.M.)


1To thee I lift my soul, O Lord:

2My God, I trust in thee:

Let me not be asham’d; let not

my foes triumph o’er me.

3Yea, let thou none ashamed be

that do on thee attend:

Ashamed let them be, O Lord,

who without cause offend.

4Thy ways, Lord, shew; teach me thy paths:

5Lead me in truth, teach me:

For of my safety thou art God;

all day I wait on thee.

6Thy mercies, that most tender are,

do thou, O Lord, remember,

And loving-kindnesses; for they

have been of old for ever.

7Let not the errors of my youth,

nor sins, remember’d be:

In mercy, for thy goodness’ sake,

O Lord, remember me.

8The Lord is good and gracious,

he upright is also:

He therefore sinners will instruct

in ways that they should go.

9The meek and lowly he will guide

in judgment just alway:

To meek and poor afflicted ones

he’ll clearly teach his way.

10The whole paths of the Lord our God

are truth and mercy sure,

To such as keep his covenant,

and testimonies pure.

11Now, for thine own name’s sake, O Lord,

I humbly thee entreat

To pardon mine iniquity;

for it is very great.

12What man fears God? him shall he teach

the way that he shall chuse.

13His soul shall dwell at ease; his seed

the earth, as heirs, shall use.

14The secret of the Lord is with

such as do fear his name;

And he his holy covenant

will manifest to them.

15Towards the Lord my waiting eyes

continually are set;

For he it is that shall bring forth

my feet out of the net.

16O turn thee unto me, O God,

have mercy me upon;

Because I solitary am,

and in affliction.

17Enlarg’d the griefs are of mine heart;

me from distress relieve.

18See mine affliction and my pain,

and all my sins forgive.

19Consider thou mine enemies,

because they many are;

And it a cruel hatred is

which they against me bear.

20O do thou keep my soul; O God,

do thou deliver me:

Let me not be asham’d; for I

do put my trust in thee.

21O let integrity and truth

keep me, who thee attend.

22Redemption, Lord, to Israel

from all his troubles send.
