Heed, Hope, Help

Tune: Franconia

('Blest are the pure in heart')

Psalm 40 parts


O LORD God, many are

Your thoughts unto us, far

Above our counting, numberless

They be, come to us, bless


Withhold not your tender

Mercies from me, but sure

O LORD, let your loving-kindness

And truth keep me, no less


To save me, LORD, be pleased

So my troubles be eased

O LORD, make haste to help me, see

I in distresses be


Let all those that seek you

Rejoice and be glad too

In you, and who your salvation

Love, praise you, each nation
