1 Thy mercy, Lord, to me extend:
On thy protection I depend;
And to thy wing for shelter haste,
Till this outrageous storm is past.

2 To thy tribunal, Lord, I fly,
Thou sov'reign judge, and God most High,
Who wonders hast for me begun,
And wilt not leave thy work undone.

3 From heav'n protect me by thy arm,
And shame all those who seek my harm.
To my relief thy mercy send,
And truth on which my hopes depend.

4 For I with savage men converse,
Like hungry lions wild and fierce,
With men whose teeth are spears, their words
Invenom'd darts, and two-edg'd swords.

5 Be thou, O God, exalted high:
And as thy glory fills the sky,
So let it be on earth display'd;
Till thou art here, as there, obey'd.

Part II.

6 My God, in whom are all the springs
Of boundless love and grace unknown,
Hide me beneath thy spreading wings,
Till the dark cloud is over-blown.

7 Up to the heav'ns I send my cry,
The Lord will my desires perform;
He sends his angel from the sky,
And saves me from the threat'ning storm.

8 Be thou exalted, O my God,
Above the heav'ns where angels dwell;
Thy pow'r on earth be known abroad,
And land to land thy wonders tell.

9 My heart is fix'd; my song shall raise
Immortal honors to thy name;
Awake, my tongue, to sound his praise,
My tongue, the glory of my frame.

10 High o'er the earth his mercy reigns,
And reaches to the utmost sky;
His truth to endless years remains,
When lower worlds dissolve and die.

11 Be thou exalted, O my God,
Above the heav'ns where angels dwell;
Thy pow'r on earth be known abroad,
And land to land thy wonders tell.
