PSALM 43
METER:  LMD (88 88 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  HE LEADETH ME

1.  Lord, be my judge, de-fend my cause
    A-gainst those who are with-out God;
    Save me from those who false-hoods tell
    And those who do not do what's just.
    You are my God, my ref-uge true;
    So why must I re-ject-ed be?
    Why do I have to go and mourn
    Be-cause I am op-pressed by foes?
2.  Send out your light, send out your truth,
    Oh, let them al-ways lead me on,
    That I may come un-to your house
    And to the mount-ain where you dwell.
    Then to God's al-tar I will go,
    To God who gives ex-ceed-ing joy;
    And I will praise you with the lyre,
    O God, my God, I will praise you.
3.  Oh, why, my soul, are you cast down?
    Oh, why are you dis-qui-et-ed?
    I shall a-gain praise God my help,
    And I shall place my hope in him.
    Oh, why, my soul, are you cast down?
    Oh, why are you dis-qui-et-ed?
    I shall a-gain praise God my help,
    And I shall place my hope in him.
