|116 (1)||Psalm 116 Version 1||CM|
|I LOVE the Lord Who heard my cry
And granted my request;
In Him Who hears and answers prayer
My trust through life shall rest.
|2||With deadly sorrows compassed round,
My heart was full of grief;
Then to the Lord I made my prayer,
That He would send relief.
|3||The Lord is just and merciful,
And gracious to the meek;
He saved me when I cried to Him,
Though I was poor and weak.
|4||Return unto your rest, my soul,
No longer troubled be.
The Lord’s sustaining love has dealt
Most graciously with me.
|5||Before my Saviour I will live;
From death He saved my soul,
My eyes from tears, my feet from falls,
And He has made me whole.
|6||In my affliction this I found,
That human help deceived;
But ever faithful was the Lord
In Whom my soul believed.
|The Psalter, 1912|
