A Prayer for Deliverance
O Lord, my God, my refuge sure,
In Thee my hope is laid;
Before the looming veil of death,
My soul is unafraid.
Though failures of my life abound,
Thy mercy shall preserve;
And Thy redemptive gift of grace
Is more than I deserve.
Arise, O Lord, and in Thy wrath
Mete justice swift and smart;
Weigh righteousness against deceit,
And spare the pure in heart.
For Thou are yet the sword and shield
Before whom foes shall bend;
And those whom faith redeems shall sing
Thy praises without end.
Psalter for Christian Worship
