v.7 13 18 21
C. M.
Deliverance from slander and reproach.
My heart rejoices in thy name
My God my help my trust
Thou hast preserved my face from shame
Mine honor from the dust.
"My life is spent with grief " I cried
"My years consumed in groans
My strength decays mine eyes are dried
And sorrow wastes my bones."
Among mine enemies my name
Was a mere proverb grown
While to my neighbors I became
Forgotten and unknown.
Slander and fear on every side
Seized and beset me round
I to the throne of grace applied
And speedy rescue found.

PAUSE.
How great deliverance thou hast wrought
Before the sons of men!
The lying lips to silence brought
And made their boastings vain!
Thy children from the strife of tongues
Shall thy pavilion hide
Guard them from infamy and wrongs
And crush the sons of pride.
Within thy secret presence Lord
Let me for ever dwell
No fenced city walled and barred
Secures a saint so well..
