O save me by Thy name,
And judge me in Thy might,
O God, now grant my urgent claim
Acceptance in Thy sight.

Strong foes against me rise,
Oppressors seek my soul,
Who set not God before their eyes,
Nor own His just control.

Lo, God my helper is,
The Lord, my mighty friend,
He shall requite my enemies,
Their just destruction send.

My sacrifice of praise
To Thee I freely bring;
My thanks, O Lord, to Thee I raise
And of Thy goodness sing.

From troubles and from woes
Thou hast delivered me,
The overthrow of all my foes
Hast given me to see.
