|Master Billy Neely 1950|
Hear my prayer, O God, incline Thine ear,
Thyself from my petition do not hide;
Take heed to me; hear how in prayer I mourn to Thee
Without Thee all is dark; I have no guide.
The enemy shouteh – the godless come fast;
Iniquity, hatred upon me they cast.
The wicked oppress me – ah, where shall I fly?
Perplexed and bewildered, O God, hear my cry!
Words: Psalm LV (54)
