Psalm 25

Stanley Wiersma, 1980

  1. LORD, to you my soul is lifted.
    Let me never be ashamed
    That I trust in you to keep me
    Though I seem to wait in vain.
    LORD, remember all your love;
    In your holy will instruct me.
    LORD, do not remember sins
    Of those younger years behind me.
  2. LORD of covenant and goodness,
    Pardon and correct my sin.
    They who worship you and fear you
    Choose the paths you choose for them.
    They and all their family
    Shall possess the earth forever.
    You, O LORD, will be their friend.
    From the snare you will deliver.
  3. Turn to me in grace and mercy,
    As I suffer all alone.
    Take away my sin and sadness,
    All the trouble I have known.
    May my fierce and spiteful foes
    Not succeed to harm and curse me.
    In your faithfulness I hope.
    On your people, LORD, have mercy.
