VERSE 1:
Unto You I lift my soul;
O my God, in You I trust;
let me not be brought down low;
shame, instead, the treacherous.
Make me know Your perfect ways,
for on You alone I wait.

CHORUS:
Unto You I lift my soul,
rescue me from my disgrace.
Unto You I lift my soul,
stoop to me with saving grace.

VERSE 2:
Lord, recall Your steadfast love—
think on me, but not my sin.
You alone are good and just,
yet You welcome humble men.
Lead me in Your righteous ways;
hide my guilt, for it is great.

CHORUS:
Unto You I lift my soul,
rescue me from my disgrace.
Unto You I lift my soul,
stoop to me with saving grace.

VERSE 3:
See the man who fears the Lord?
God Himself shall be his Friend;
though ensnared by net or cord,
he shall dwell in confidence.
All his offspring shall be blessed;
God shall come when they're distressed.

CHORUS:
Unto You I lift my soul,
rescue me from my disgrace.
Unto You I lift my soul,
stoop to me with saving grace.

VERSE 4:
Lord, my woes and foes abound,
all my troubles are enlarged.
I feel hatred all around:
be my Refuge and my Guard!
Let me not be put to shame,
for on You alone I wait.

CHORUS:
Unto You I lift my soul,
rescue me from my disgrace.
Unto You I lift my soul,
stoop to me with saving grace.
