PSALM 25:1-9
METER:  CM (86 86)
This is the meter for such hymns as "Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed" and "Amazing Grace"

1.  To you, O Lord, I lift my soul,
    O God, in you I trust.
    Do not let me be put to shame,
    Don't let my foes ex-ult.
2.  Let none who put their trust in you
    Be ev-er put to shame;
    Let treach-er-ous and wan-ton ones
    Know on-ly shame and grief.
3.  Teach me to know your ways, O Lord;
    Make them known un-to me.
    Lead me to live ac-cord-ing to
    The truth you have made known.
4.  You are my God, who has saved me;
    I wait for you all day.
    Be mind-ful of your mer-cy, Lord,
    And of your con-stant love.
5.  You showed your love from long a-go.
    For-give my youth-ful sins;
    Ac-cord-ing to your stead-fast love
    Re-mem-ber me, O Lord.
6.  The Lord is ev-er just and good,
    Leads sin-ners in his path.
    He leads the hum-ble to do right
    And teach-es them his way.
