Hear now Lord my complaint


Hear now Lord my complaint.

Protect my life from harm.

Under assault I faint

Unless you lend your arm.

Against me wicked men conspire

To see me fall is their desire.

They sharpen tongues like swords,

With cruel words take aim.

The sovereign Lord records

Attempts to cause me shame.

But their own words he'll turn on them

Their own mouth will themselves condemn.

As God sees justice done

The people gaze in awe.

Take refuge in his Son,

Proclaim his holy law.

In him the righteous shall rejoice

And in his praise will lift their voice!
