In Full Assurance of Thy Grace

Full Text

1 In full assurance of Thy grace
To thee my prayer ascend;
In Thy abounding love and truth,
O God, salvation send.

2 Preserve my sinking soul, I pray,
From tides of hatred save;
Let not the waters overflow,
Redeem me from the grave.

3 Because Thy mercy, Lord, is good,
O answer me in grace,
And in the riches of Thy love
O turn to me Thy face.

4 Hide not Thy face from my distress,
A speedy answer send;
Draw near to me, my soul redeem,
From all my foes defend.

5 Well known to Thee is my reproach,
My shame and my disgrace;
The adversaries of my soul
Are all before Thy face.

6 My heart is broken by reproach,
My soul is full of grief;
I looked in vain for comforters,
For pity and relief.

7 They gave me bitter gall for food,
And taunting words they spake;
They gave me vinegar to drink,
My burning thirst to slake.

8 Their peace and plenty be their snare,
In blindness let them grope;
Thy indignation on them pour,
And desolate their hope.

9 Because they proudly persecute
Those whom Thou, Lord, dost smite,
Let them be blotted from Thy book
And banished from Thy sight.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
