Psalm 40:1 First Part (i Waited Patient For The Lord)

Psalm 40:1. 1 3 5 17. First Part. C. M.
A song of deliverance from great distress.


I waited patient for the Lord,
He bow'd to hear my cry;
He saw me resting on his word,
And brought salvation nigh.

He rais'd me from a horrid pit
Where mourning long I lay,
And from my bonds releas'd my feet,
Deep bonds of miry clay.

Firm on a rock he made me stand,
And taught my cheerful tongue
To praise the wonders of his hand,
In a new thankful song.

I'll spread his works of grace abroad;
The saints with joy shall hear,
And sinners learn to make my God
Their only hope and fear.

How many are thy thoughts of love!
Thy mercies, Lord, how great!
We have not words nor hours enough
Their numbers to repeat.

When I'm afflicted, poor and low,
And light and peace depart,
My God beholds my heavy woe,
And bears me on his heart.

Psalm 39:3 Third Part (god Of My Life, Look Gently Down)
Psalm 39:3. 9-13. Third PartSick-bed devotion; or, Pleading without repining.God of my life, look gently down,Behold the pains I feel;But I am dumb before thy throne,Nor dare dispute thy will.Diseases are thy servants, Lord,They come at thy command;I'll not attempt a murmuring wordAgainst thy chastening hand.Yet I may plead with humble cries,Remove thy sharp rebukes;My strength consumes, my spirit diesThro' thy repeated strokes.Crush'd as a moth beneath thy hand,We moulder to the dust;Our feeble powers can ne'er withstand,And all our beauty's lost.(This mortal life decays apace,How soon the bubble's broke!Adam and all his numerous raceAre vanity and smoke.)I'm but a sojourner
