Pray, who is the man who fears God and stands,
God will direct all his ways.
His soul spends the night with goodness in right,
Ancestor of rulers of states.
And God will befriend all those who fear Him,
Show them His covenant grace!
My eyes look to Him, when trapped in my sin,
Yahweh delivers my feet.
Pray deal graciously and look well on me,
Lonely, depressed with defeat.
My heart steams with stress, anxiety-pressed,
Save me! Redeem, I entreat!
Lord, look at my state: iniquity great,
God all my sins has consumed.
Lord, look at my foes, their number – who knows?
Violent their hatred has fumed.
Lord, please guide my soul, no shame to control,
I have my refuge in you.
Your integrity will well protect me,
Waiting till you set me free.
Your covenant grace forever I praise,
Promised to children unseen.
When troubles distress, apostates oppress,
God will His children redeem.
