40 (1)Psalm 40 Version 1CM
I WAITED for the Lord my God,
   And patiently did bear;
At length to me He did incline,
    My voice and cry to hear.
2  He took me from a fearful pit
    And from the miry clay,
And on a rock He set my feet,
    Establishing my way.
3  He put a new song in my mouth,
    Our God to magnify;
Many shall see it, and shall fear,
    And on the Lord rely.
4  O blessèd is the man whose trust
    Upon the Lord relies,
Respecting not the proud, nor such
    As turn aside to lies.
5  O Lord my God, full many are
    The wonders Thou hast done;
Thy gracious thoughts to us-ward far
    Above all thoughts are gone.
6  Thy tender mercies, Lord, from me
    O do Thou not restrain;
Thy lovingkindness, and Thy Truth,
    Let them me still maintain.
Scottish Psalter, 1650
