To You, O Lord

Standard

To You O Lord I lift up my soul
In you I trust O my God
Do not let me be put to shame
Nor let my enemies triumph over me

No one whose hope is in you
Will ever be put to shame
That’s why my eyes are on you Oh Lord
Surround me, defend me
Oh how I need you
To you I lift up my soul
To you I lift up my soul

Show me your ways and teach me your paths
Guide me in truth lead me on
For you’re my God, you are my Saviour
My hope is in you each moment of the day

Remember Lord your mercy and love
That ever flow from of old
Remember not the sins of my youth
Or my rebellious ways
According to your love remember me
According to your love
For you are good O Lord

song based on Psalm 25

[a] Of David.

 1To you, O LORD, I(A) lift up my soul. 2O my God, in you I(B) trust;
   (C) let me not be put to shame;
   (D) let not my enemies exult over me.
3Indeed,(E) none who wait for you shall be put to shame;
   they shall be ashamed who are(F) wantonly(G) treacherous.

 4(H) Make me to know your ways, O LORD;
   teach me your paths.
5Lead me in your(I) truth and teach me,
   for you are the God of my salvation;
   for you I wait all the day long.

 6Remember your(J) mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love,
   (K) for they have been from of old.
7Remember not(L) the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
   according to your(M) steadfast love remember me,
   for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!

 8(N) Good and upright is the LORD;
   therefore he(O) instructs sinners in the way.
9He leads the humble in what is right,
   and teaches the humble his way.
10All the paths of the LORD are(P) steadfast love and faithfulness,
   for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

 11For your(Q) name’s sake, O LORD,
   pardon my guilt, for it is(R) great.
12Who is the man who fears the LORD?
   Him(S) will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
13His soul shall(T) abide in well-being,
   and his(U) offspring(V) shall inherit the land.
14(W) The friendship[b] of the LORD is for those who fear him,
   and he makes known to them his covenant.
15My(X) eyes are ever toward the LORD,
   for he will(Y) pluck my feet out of the net.

 16(Z) Turn to me and be gracious to me,
   for I am lonely and afflicted.
17The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
   bring me out of my distresses.
18(AA) Consider my affliction and my trouble,
   and forgive all my sins.

 19Consider how many are my foes,
   and with what violent hatred they hate me.
20Oh, guard my soul, and deliver me!
   (AB) Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
21May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
   for I wait for you.

 22(AC) Redeem Israel, O God,
   out of all his troubles.
