Psalm 86


1. Turn to me, O LORD, and heed me;
see how poor I am, how needy.
I who serve you constantly
trust in you to rescue me.
Guard my life, show me your favour,
for you are my God and Saviour.
Lord, your servant’s joy renew,
for I lift my soul to you.

2. You forgive us our transgressions
in your mercy and compassion;
you abound in love and grace.
In my woes I seek your face.
You, O LORD, will hear my pleading.
There’s no powèr yours exceeding.
You, O God, how great you are,
great your deeds beyond compare!

3. All the nations will adore you;
they will come and bow before you,
bringing glory to your name,
for none equals you in fame.
LORD supreme in might and splendour,
glorious are your works of wonder;
glorious is your heavenly throne.
You are God – yes, you alone.

4. Teach me, in your ways direct me;
in your truth, O LORD, instruct me.
Let it be my heart’s one aim
to revere your holy name.
Thankful for your grace and favour,
I will praise your name forever.
In your love you came to save
me, your servant, from the grave.

5. See the proud pursue and hound me;
those who seek my life surround me.
They for you have no regard.
But in you I trust, O LORD.
You are rich in love and favour,
slow to anger, patient ever;
boundless is your faithfulness.
Pity me in my distress.

6. Strengthen me in my affliction;
grant your servant your protection.
You whom I rely upon,
rescue me, your handmaid’s son.
Give me proof of your great favour;
show my foes you are my Saviour.
Shame them all and let them see
how you help and comfort me.
