To Thee I lift my soul,
In Thee my trust re­pose;
My God, O put me not to shame
Before tri­um­phant foes.

None shall be put to shame
That hum­bly wait for Thee,
But those that will­ful­ly trans­gress,
On them the shame shall be.

Show me Thy paths, O Lord,
Teach me Thy per­fect way,
O guide me in Thy truth di­vine,
And lead me day by day.

For Thou art God that dost
To me sal­va­tion send,
And pa­tient­ly through all the day
Upon Thee I at­tend.

Recall Thy mer­cies, Lord,
Their ten­der­ness untold,
And all Thy lov­ing-kind­ness­es,
For they have been of old.
