PSALM 70
METER:  88 88 888
TUNE:  THE SOLID ROCK
This is the meter for the hymn known as "The Solid Rock" or "My Hope Is Built."

1.  Please save me, God!  Lord, help me now!
    May those who seek to end my life
    Be-come con-fused and be a-shamed.
    May those who re-joice o'er my woe
    Be turned back and suf-fer dis-grace,
    May those who made fun of me be
    Dis-mayed as they fall into shame.
2.  May all who come to you re-joice;
    May all who thank you that you save
    Say now alnd al-ways, "God is great."
    But I am poor and am in need;
    Hur-ry to help me, O my God!
    You are my help, the one who saves--
    Do not de-lay, but come to me!
