1 O God, give Thou ear to my plea,
And hide not Thyself from my cry;
O hearken and answer Thou me,
As restless and weary I sigh.

2 O that I had wings like a dove,
Fro then I would fly far away
And seek for the rest that I love,
Where trouble no more could dismay.

3 Nay, soul, call on god all the day;
The Lord for Thy help will appear;
At eve, morn, and noon humbly pray,
And He thy petition will hear.

4 Thy burden now cast on the Lord,
And He shall thy weakness sustain;
The righteous who trust in His word
Unmoved shall forever remain.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
