38 (2)Psalm 38 Version 28 7. 8 7
IN Thy wrath and hot displeasure,
   Chasten not Thy servant, Lord;
Let Thy mercy, without measure,
    Help and peace to me afford.
2  Heavy is my tribulation,
    Sore my punishment has been;
Broken by Thine indignation,
    I am troubled by my sin.
3  With my burden of transgression,
    Heavy-laden, overborne,
Humbled low I make confession,
    For my folly now I mourn.
4  Weak and wounded I implore Thee,
    Lord, to me Thy mercy show;
All my prayer is now before Thee,
    All my trouble Thou dost know.
5  Lord my God, do not forsake me,
    Let me know that Thou art near;
Under Thy protection take me,
    As my Saviour now appear.
The Psalter, 1912
