I waited for the Lord my God, And patiently did bearTune: BALLERMA (Barthélemon)
Published in 45 hymnals
1 I waited for the Lord my God,
and patiently did bear;
at length to me he did incline,
my voice and cry to hear.
2 He took me from a fearful pit
and from the miry clay,
and on a rock he set my feet,
establishing my way.
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
our God to magnify:
many shall see it, and shall fear,
and on the Lord rely.
4 O blessèd are all they whose trust
upon the Lord relies;
respecting not the proud, nor such
as turn aside to lies.
