Scottish Psalter: Psalm 70

Psalm 70, S.M.: Lord, haste me to deliver

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.

First Version (S.M.)

Meter: S.M. (6,6,8,6)

1 Lord, haste me to deliver; with speed, Lord, succour me. 2 Let them that for my soul do seek sham’d and confounded be:

Turn’d back be they, and sham’d, that in my hurt delight. 3 Turn’d back be they, Ha, ha! that say, their shaming to requite.

4 In thee let all be glad, and joy that seek for thee: Let them who thy salvation love say still, God praised be.

5 I poor and needy am; come, Lord, and make no stay: My help thou and deliv’rer art; O Lord, make no delay.
