Psalter 102

Verse 1
In Thy wrath and hot displeasure,
Chasten not Thy servant Lord;
Let Thy mercy, without measure,
Help and peace to me afford.

Verse 2
Heavy is my tribulation,
Sure my punishment has been;
Broken by Thy indignation,
I am troubled by my sin.

Verse 3
With my burden of transgression
Heavy laden, overborne,
Humbled low I make confession,
For my folly now I mourn.

Verse 4
Weak and wounded, I implore Thee;
Lord to me Thy mercy show;
All my prayer is now before Thee,
All my trouble Thou dost know.

Verse 5
Darkness gathers, foes assail me,
But I answer not a word;
All my friends desert and fail me,
Only Thou my cry hast heard.
