VERSE 1:
Hear my cry, O God, my Father,
And attend unto my prayer.
From the ends of earth, I cry out,
When my heart no more can bear.

CHORUS:
Let me keep my word before You;
Hear my cry, O God, my King!
I will praise You, Lord, forever;
To Your name, my song shall ring!

VERSE 2:
Lead me to the Rock, O Father;
Higher now than I can see.
You have been my mighty tower;
Refuge from my enemy.

CHORUS:
Let me keep my word before You;
Hear my cry, O God, my King!
I will praise You, Lord, forever;
To Your name, my song shall ring!

VERSE 3:
Let me dwell with You forever,
'Neath the shelter of Your wing.
You have heard, O God, my promise
To Your cov'nant I will cling.

CHORUS:
Let me keep my word before You;
Hear my cry, O God, my King!
I will praise You, Lord, forever;
To Your name, my song shall ring!

VERSE 4:
Length of days and generations
To the king the Lord has giv'n,
To abide with God forever;
By His mercy he shall live.

CHORUS:
Let me keep my word before You;
Hear my cry, O God, my King!
I will praise You, Lord, forever;
To Your name, my song shall ring!
