Hymnal: The Psalter #310 (1912) Meter: 126.96.36.199 Hymnal Title: The Psalter First Line: I love the Lord, for my request Lyrics: 1 I love the Lord, for my request
And humble plea He makes His care;
In Him through life my faith shall rest,
for He both hears and answers prayer.
2 Brought nigh to death and full of grief,
The Lord's salvation I besought;
He heard my cry, He sent relief,
My soul from depths of woe He brought.
3 Most kind and righteous is the Lord,
Our God is merciful indeed,
Delighting ever to afford
His help to me in time of need.
4 Return unto thy rest, my soul,
The Lord has richly dealt with thee,
Delivered thee from death's control,
From sin and sorrow set thee free.
5 Since He has freed my eyes from tears
And kept my feet from evil ways,
Redeemed from life's distressing fears,
With Him I walk, and Him I praise.
6 In my affliction and my pain,
When fears alarmed and hopes deceived,
I found all human helpers vain,
But in the Lord my soul believed.
