PSALM 4 C.M. [Sing Psalms]
Recommended Tunes: 27 Ayrshire, 74 Metzler
1 O hear my cry, my righteous God.
Relieve me; I’m distressed.
Display your mercy to me now,
and answer my request.
2 The glory of my name, O men,
how long will you despise?
How long will you delude yourselves,
still searching after lies?
3 Know that the LORD has set apart
the godly as his own;
The LORD will hear me when I call
and my request make known.
4 In anger do not break God’s law;
consider and be still.
5 Present a righteous sacrifice,
and wait upon his will.
6 “O who can show us any good?”
I hear so many say.
O LORD, shine on us with your light;
show us your face, I pray.
7 You filled my heart with greater joy
than others may have found
As they rejoiced at harvest time,
when grain and wine abound.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace;
my heart will rest secure,
For you alone, O gracious LORD,
will keep me safe and sure.
