Rescue me, consider my affliction
Your law I don’t forget but keep with great conviction.
Redeem me, plead my cause I pray
You spoke Your word of promise, revive my life today.
Rebels Your salvation cannot know
because Your laws and statutes they forego.
Revive me in Your perfect justice, Lord
let tender mercies on Your servant be outpoured.
Replete with persecutors and enemies
but I’ll not swerve from Your testimonies.
Repulsed by how the traitors act
because Your word they won’t enact.
Restore, revive me in Your love
I love Your precepts from above.
Reliable and true, Your word is pure
forever will Your righteous laws endure.
