Troubles Told


Tune: Sandys

('Teach me, my God and King')

Psalm 6 v.1-4


O Lord, rebuke me not

In anger, else my lot

Shall be poor, nor chasten me in

Displeasure for my sin


Have mercy upon me

O Lord, my troubles see

For I am weak, come to me, heal

Me, that I you sense, feel


My bones are vexed and pained

My soul sore troubled, feigned

I this not, but O Lord, how long

Till I return to song?


And you return to me

And from my troubles free

Me, O save me for your mercies

Sake, do so, these my pleas

          Does God need to do a counselling course, Orchi?
