In Thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in Thy righteousness.@Psalm 31:1

From The Psal­ter (Pitts­burgh, Penn­syl­van­ia: Unit­ed Pres­by­ter­i­an Board of Pub­li­ca­tion, 1912), num­ber 82.

Le­ba­non (Zun­del) John Zun­del, 1855 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Defend me, Lord, from shame,
For still I trust in Thee;
Since just and righteous is Thy name,
From trouble set me free.
O Lord, in mercy hear,
Deliver me with speed;
Be my defense and refuge near,
My help in time of need.

Thee for my rock I take,
My fortress and my stay;
O lead me for Thy own name’s sake
And guide me in Thy way.
Lord, Thou dost strength impart;
Then free me from the snare
Which foes for me, with wicked art,
Did secretly prepare.

My spirit unto Thee
I trustfully commend;
Jehovah, God of truth, to me
Thou didst redemption send.
I hate the false and vain,
My trust is in the Lord,
And still my heart in joyous strain
Thy mercy will record.
