Prayer Prosperings


Tune: Song 1

('Eternal Ruler of the ceaseless round')

Parts of Psalms 140 to 145


140 v.12-13

I know the Lord, He will maintain the cause

Of the afflicted, help them, shall not pause

To come to their aid, and too help the poor

Uphold their right, humble of every shore

Surely the righteous shall give to your name

Thanks and praise, abiding in you the dame


141 v.8-10

For you remain the same, Lord, and my eyes

O God the Lord are to you, and I rise

in spirit, and my trust it is in you

Leave my soul not destitute, it renew

Keep me from the wicked's traps, gins and snare

I seek not their ways nor their ill affairs


142 v.5-6

I cried unto you, Lord, and I did say

You are my refuge and portion each day

In the land of the living here I dwell

Attend to my cry, that I your help tell

For I am brought very low, downcast here

Save me from enemies, your power appear


143 v,6-7

I stretch forth my hands unto you O Lord

My soul thirsts for you and your every word

I be as a thirsty land needing rain

O come to me with fresh showers again

Hear me, help quickly, for my spirit fails

But I shall be upheld, your grace prevails


144 v.9-10

I will unto you sing a new song true

Voices and instruments employ for you

For its you who gives us salvation

You deliver us, great works you have done

Protecting us from harm of enemy

Your strength and victory we share and see


145 v.13

Your kingdom it be of everlasting

Endless praises and worship shall we bring

To you, the King of Kings, and Lord of all

Open to hear prayers of those who do call

Upon you, and too your dominion sure

Endure through all generations e'ermore
