1 Make haste, O my God, to deliver, I pray,
O Lord, to my rescue make haste;
Let those who would harm me be filled with dismay,
and in their own folly disgraced.
2 Let them be turned back in confusion, O Lord,
Who in my destruction would joy;
Let shame and defeat be their only reward
Who sneers and derision employ.
3 May ll those who seek Thee, and make Thee their choice,
Great gladness and blessedness see;
May all those who love Thy salvation rejoice
And constantly magnify Thee.
4 I cry in deep need and Thy help I implore;
Make haste to the rescue, I pray;
My Savior Thou art, and my strength evermore,
No longer Thy coming delay.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
