Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.@Psalm 43:1

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 120.

Blaenhafren traditional Welsh tune (🔊 pdf nwc).

Judge me, God of my salvation,
Plead my cause, for Thee I trust;
Hear my earnest supplication,
Save me from my foes unjust;
O my soul, why art thou grieving?
What disquiets and dismays?
Hope in God; His help receiving,
I shall yet my Savior praise.

On Thy strength alone relying,
Why am I cast off by Thee
In the sorrow of my heart,
While the foe oppresses me?
Light and truth, my way attending,
Send Thou forth to be my guide,
Till Thy holy mount ascending,
I within Thy house abide.

At Thy sacred altar bending,
God, my God, my boundless joy,
Harp and voice, in worship blending,
For Thy praise will I employ.
O my soul, why art thou grieving?
What disquiets and dismays?
Hope in God; His help receiving,
I shall yet my Savior praise.
