Psalm 43

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Judge me, O God, and plead my cause
       against th' ungodly nation;
     From the unjust and crafty man,
       O be thou my salvation.
2    For thou the God art of my strength;
       why thrusts thou me thee fro'?
     For th' enemy's oppression
       why do I mourning go?

3    O send thy light forth and thy truth;
       let them be guides to me,
     And bring me to thine holy hill,
       ev'n where thy dwellings be.
4    Then will I to God's altar go,
       to God my chiefest joy:
     Yea, God, my God, thy name to praise
       my harp I will employ.

5    Why art thou then cast down, my soul?
       what should discourage thee?
     And why with vexing thoughts art thou
       disquieted in me?
     Still trust in God; for him to praise
       good cause I yet shall have:
     He of my count'nance is the health,
       my God that doth me save.
