37 (1)Psalm 37 Version 17 7. 7 7. 7 7
WHY should I so fretful be,
   Fearful, envious, bowed by care?
Workers of iniquity
    Soon shall be no longer there.
Why, my soul, distrusting be,
Seldom resting patiently?
2  Help me, Lord, to feel and know
    Just how greatly I offend
When I envy men below,
    Making earthly gain my end,
Sharing thus the aims of those
Who are Thy determined foes.
3  Help me to believe Thy Word,
    Yielding all my ways to Thee,
Trust Thee as a living Lord,
    Free from base anxiety;
May my greatest pleasures be
All those things which come from Thee.
