O God, in the multitude of Thy mercy hear me, in the truth of Thy salvation. Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters. Psalm 69:13–14

To Thee, great God, I make my prayer;
Do Thou my supplications hear;
Let me not sink, o’erwhelmed in grief,
But kindly send my soul relief.
O let me now Thy goodness prove,
Thy tender mercies, and Thy love;
Turn not away, O Lord, Thy face,
But hear, and heal me with Thy grace.
So shall my song to Thee arise,
Thy praise shall echo through the skies;
Through all the earth will I proclaim
The greatness of Jehovah’s name.
