1 O God, give ear unto my cry;
and to my prayer attend.
from distant corners of the land
my cry to you I'll send.

2 My plea is made with fainting heart
and great perplexity;
lead me in safety to the rock
that higher is than I.

3 For you have long my refuge been,
a shelter by your power;
a tower of strength against my foes
in every evil hour.

4 Within your dwelling, Lord my God,
for ever I'll abide;
and in the shadow of your wings
with confidence I'll hide.
