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.
