O Lord, do not rebuke me

O Lord, do not rebuke me,
nor in your wrath chastise;
in mercy spare my body:
my soul in anguish cries.

2. But turn, O Lord, and save me:
your faithful love I claim;
if I am left to perish,
how shall I praise your name?

3. I’m wearied with my groaning,
my eyes are blind with tears,
depression overwhelms me
and magnifies my fears.

4. Away, you powers of evil!
The Lord knows my despair,
the Lord has heard my pleading,
the Lord accepts my prayer.

5. My enemies frustrated,
ashamed at their defeat,
shall turn back in confusion
and suddenly retreat.
