Deliverance Desirings

Fits tune: Binchester

('Happy are they, they that love God')

Psalm 74 v.12 - 23


1. For God of old, He is my King

To Him let praises ring

He works salvation in the earth

Brings people to new birth


2. The sea He divided it strong

The people passed along

Through on dry land to safety brought

For God His people sought


3. The day is yours, night is your too

You prepare light, sun, new

That it shine bright with glorious ray

Enlightening our way


4. You have set all borders of earth

Given each land its worth

Summer, Winter, Autumn you make

And neither Spring forsake


5.  Remember Lord, the enemy

Has reproached you, here see

And that foolish ones have blasphemed

Have not your name esteemed


6. O deliver me not, my soul

To them, but make me whole

For I am as your turtle-dove

The focus of your love


7. Forget not Lord, here be the poor

Needing strong help for sure

Have respect to your covenant

Evil does not relent


8. Dark places of the earth contain

Dwellings of cruelty, pain

O let not oppressed be ashamed

Nor be their name defamed


9.  Let the poor and needy you praise

And thanks to you upraise

Arise, O God, plead your own cause

Bring peace to tumults, wars


10. Forget not the foolish reproach

Of wicked who encroach

Nor forget voice of enemies

You who all good, evil, sees
