2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. LORD, for you my soul is longing;
O my God, in you I trust.
Do not let my foes disgrace me;
stop the taunts of the unjust.
All whose hope is in your name
you will honour with your blessing;
traitors you will put to shame –
those without excuse transgressing.
2. Show your paths to me, your servant,
and direct me in your ways.
Lead me in your truth and teach me;
guide and keep me all my days.
LORD, I know your word is true,
and with eager expectation
all day long I hope in you
as the God of my salvation.
3. LORD, remember your great mercy,
which has ever been of old.
Call to mind your steadfast promise
and your constant love unfold.
LORD, forgive my sins of youth,
my rebellion, my transgression.
God of goodness, grace, and truth,
think of me in your compassion.
4. He, the LORD, is good and upright;
love and mercy he will show.
Sinners are by him instructed
in the way that they should go.
He reveals the path of light
to the humble and the lowly,
guiding them in what is right,
teaching them his laws most holy.
5. All God’s paths are love and mercy,
faithfulness that never ends,
for all those who keep his covenant
and who honour its demands.
As befits your holy name,
LORD, forgive my evildoing;
great though be my sin and shame,
hear my prayer, your love renewing.
6. Who, then, serves the LORD and fears him?
God will guide him all his days,
teaching him what path to follow,
leading him in righteous ways.
Then will he know happiness,
and his children God will favour:
all the land they will possess
as their heritage forever.
7. God confides in those who fear him,
has to them his friendship shown.
To all those on him depending
he will make his covenant known.
I my eyes on him have set
and will trust him without ceasing.
He will free me from the net,
from the snare my feet releasing.
8. Turn to me and show your favour;
I am lonely and distressed.
From my troubles me deliver;
save me, for I am oppressed.
LORD, I plead for your support
as I pine away and languish.
Heal the sorrows of my heart
and relieve my growing anguish.
9. Look on me in your compassion
and my misery relieve.
Wipe away all my transgressions;
all my sins, O LORD, forgive.
See how countless are my foes
who maliciously beset me.
Constantly their number grows;
see how fiercely they all hate me.
10. Guard my life! Do not neglect me:
let me not be put to shame.
May integrity protect me,
for my hope is in your name.
Trusting in your power supreme,
I await my liberation.
God, your Israel redeem
from distress and tribulation.
