Rockingham (Tune 181).png
Rockingham

1 LORD, in your wrath rebuke me not; 

in anger do not chasten me. 

Have mercy, LORD, for I am faint; 

LORD, heal me in my agony. 

3 My soul with anguish is distressed. 

O LORD, how long will you delay? 

4 Turn to me, LORD, and free my soul; 

In steadfast love save me, I pray. 

5 No one in death remembers you; 

Who from the grave can give you praise? 

6 My groaning weakens me; at night 

My bed is drenched with tears always. 

7 My eyes grow weak with tears of grief; 

They fail because of all my foes. 

8 Away from me, you evil crowd! 

The LORD has listened to my woes. 

9 The LORD has heard my prayer for help; 

the LORD has listened to my plea. 

10 My enemies, disgraced and shamed, 

Will turn back from me suddenly.
