Easy Play Psalm 141
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Hasten, LORD! Hear my supplication.
O let my prayer like incense rise;
receive as evening sacrifice
the hands I lift in adoration.
2. Save me, LORD, from all sin and folly
and guard the doorway of my lips;
set there a constant watch that keeps
my mouth from speaking words unholy.
3. Let my heart to wrongs not incite me,
nor let me seek the company
of those who love iniquity;
may not their choicest foods delight me.
4. Let good men, when I am transgressing,
rebuke me, strike me, punish me.
This will like healing ointment be –
a welcome kindness and a blessing.
5. Evildoers – how I detest them.
But when their leaders are flung down
from rocky cliffs and overthrown,
they’ll know how justly I addressed them.
6. As new-ploughed earth with rocks is cluttered,
as barren fields are strewn with stones,
so, as it were, our very bones
before the gaping grave lie scattered.
7. LORD, my eyes I fix now directly on you,
my helper in the strife.
Save me from danger, guard my life;
in your unfailing love, protect me.
8. Keep me from those who would ensnare me,
from traps that wicked men have set;
let them be caught in their own net,
while I escape because you spare me.
