Psalm 70 

 


First Version (S.M.)

 

[Recommended tunes: St Olave, Song 20, Zurich ]

6,6,8,6


         

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.

                                                                         

1Lord, haste me to deliver;

with speed, Lord, succour me.

2Let them that for my soul do seek

sham'd and confounded be:

Turn'd back be they, and sham'd,

that in my hurt delight.

3Turn'd back be they, Ha, ha! that say,

their shaming to requite.

 

4In thee let all be glad,

and joy that seek for thee:

Let them who thy salvation love

say still, God praised be.

5I poor and needy am;

come, Lord, and make no stay:

My help thou and deliv'rer art;

O Lord, make no delay.

 

                                                                                                        


    Second Version (C.M.)  

 

[Recommended tunes: Dundee, Salzburg, Kilmarnock]

8,6,8,6


 

1Make haste, O God, me to preserve;

with speed, Lord, succour me.

2Let them that for my soul do seek

sham'd and confounded be:

Let them be turned back, and sham'd,

that in my hurt delight.

3Turn'd back be they, Ha, ha! that say,

their shaming to requite.

 

4O Lord, in thee let all be glad,

and joy that seek for thee:

Let them who thy salvation love

say still, God praised be.

5But I both poor and needy am;

come, Lord, and make no stay:

My help thou and deliv'rer art;

O Lord, make no delay.
