Psalm 70, C.M.: Make haste, O God, me to preserve
Second Version (C.M.)
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 Make haste, O God, me to preserve; with speed, Lord, succour me. 2 Let them that for my soul do seek sham’d and confounded be:
Let them be turned back, and sham’d, that in my hurt delight. 3 Turn’d back be they, Ha, ha! that say, their shaming to requite.
4 O Lord, in thee let all be glad, and joy that seek for thee: Let them who thy salvation love say still, God praised be.
5 But I both poor and needy am; come, Lord, and make no stay: My help thou and deliv’rer art; O Lord, make no delay.
