This is the meter of the hymn "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded."
1. Re-mem-ber my af-flic-tion
And bit-ter-ness, O Lord.
My soul thinks of it al-ways
And is bowed down in me.
But this thing I re-mem-ber,
And there-fore I have hope:
God's stead-fast love ne'er ceas-es,
His mer-cies nev-er end;
2. They are made new each morn-ing;
Your faith-ful-ness is great.
My soul says, "God's my por-tion,
And I will hope in him."
God's good to those who seek him,
Whose souls wait up-on him.
'Tis good to wait in qui-et
For God to come and save.
