|I CRIED unto the Lord my God,
I raised my voice in prayer,
I showed Him all my troubled paths,
Who for my soul did care.
|2||My spirit overwhelmed with grief,
Was more than I could bear,
But in this world I knew of none
Who for my soul could care.
|3||I turned from vanities of earth,
And pleasures light as air,
And asked the Lord to be my God,
And for my soul to care.
|4||‘O be my refuge from all guilt,
And lift me from despair;
Be Thou my only portion here,
And for my lost soul care.
|5||‘A weak and helpless sinner I,
Held in the tempter’s snare;
O bring me out of bondage, Thou
Who for my soul can care.’
|6||A life so new and so divine,
With blessings high and fair,
Descended from my pardoning God,
Who for my soul did care!
