View Lyrics
Hear, Lord, the voice of my complaint,
preserve my life from fear;
hide me from plotting enemies
and evil crowding near.
The workers of iniquity
their deadly shafts prepare;
they aim at me their treach'rous words;
O, save me from despair!

The wicked in their base designs
grow arrogant and bold;
conspiring secretly, they think
that God will not behold.
They search out more iniquity,
their thoughts and plans are deep;
but God will judge, for He is near,
His saints to guard and keep.

The wicked, by their sins consumed,
shall soon be brought to shame;
the hand of God shall yet appear,
and all shall fear His name.
The just shall triumph in the Lord,
their trust shall be secure,
and endless glory then shall crown
the upright and the pure.
