1 O let my supplicating cry
By Thee, my gracious Lord, be heard;
Give wisdom and deliver me
According to thy faithful word.

2 Instructed in thy holy law,
To praise Thy word I lift my voice;
O Lord, be Thou my present help,
For thy commandments are my choice.

3 For Thy salvation I have longed,
And in Thy law is my delight;
Enrich my soul with life divine,
And help me by Thy judgments right.

4 Thy servant like a wandering sheep
Has lost the path and gone astray;
Restore my soul and lead me home,
For Thy commands I would obey.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
