[From the 1655 Edition.]|
O Lord, the hope
of Israel, all they that forsake
Thee shall be ashamed ; and they that depart from
Thee, shall be written in the earth, because they have
forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed
; save me,
and I shall be saved, for Thou art my health, and my
I said in the cutting off of my days,
I shall go to
the gates of the grave ; I have deprived myself of the
residue of my years.
I said, I shall not see the Lord, even
the Lord in the
land of the living : I shall behold man no more with
the inhabitants of the world.
O Lord ! by Thee doth man live,
and from Thee is
the life of my spirit : therefore wilt Thou recover me,
and make me to live.
Thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the
pit of corruption ; for Thou hast cast all my sins
behind Thy back.
For Thy name's sake hast Thou put off
thine anger ;
for Thy praise hast Thou refrained from me, that I
should not be cut off.
For the grave cannot praise Thee, death
celebrate Thee : they that go down into the pit, cannot
hope for Thy truth.
The living, the living, he shall praise
Thee, as I do
this day : the father to the children shall make known
O Lord ! Thou hast been
merciful, Thou hast
brought back my life from corruption : Thou hast
redeemed me from my sin.
They that follow after lying vanities,
Therefore shall Thy songs be with me,
prayer unto the God of my life.
I will go unto the altar of my God,
unto God, the
joy of my youth ; and in Thy fear will I worship
towards Thy holy temple.
I will sacrifice unto Thee with the
voice of thanks-
giving ; I will pay that which I have vowed ; sal-
vation is of the Lord.
