PSALM 31:1-5, 15-16
METER: CM (86 86)
SUGGESTED TUNE: ST. ANNE
This is the meter to such hymns as "O God, Our Help in Ages Past."
1. In you, O Lord, I seek ref-uge,
Let me not be a-shamed;
In right-eous-ness de-liv-er me.
Turn to me, save me now!
2. A rock of ref-uge be to me,
A fort-ress strong to save.
You're my de-fense, Lord; for your sake
Lead and di-rect my ways.
3. Take me out of the hid-den trap,
For you are my ref-uge.
In-to your hands I place my-self;
You saved me, faith-ful God.
4. My times are al-ways in your care,
Save me from all my foes.
Look up-on me with shin-ing face,
In stead-fast love save me.
