Psalm 25:1 First Part [I Lift My Soul To God]
by [?]

Psalm 25:1. 1-11. First Part
Waiting for pardon and direction.

I Lift my soul to God,
My trust is in his name;
Let not my foes that seek my blood
Still triumph in my shame.

Sin and the powers of hell
Persuade me to despair;
Lord, make me know thy covenant well,
That I may ‘scape the snare.

From the first dawning light
Till the dark evening rise,
For thy salvation, Lord, I wait
With ever-longing eyes.

Remember all thy grace,
And lead me in thy truth;
Forgive the sins of riper days,
And follies of my youth.

The Lord is just and kind,
The meek shall learn his ways;
And every humble sinner find
The methods of his grace.

For his own goodness’ sake
He saves my soul from shame;
He pardons (tho’ my guilt be great)
Thro’ my Redeemer’s name.
