Psalms

PSALM 130

The following is a metrical paraphrase by David Schütz , which may be sung to the tune of Kingsfold (‘I heard the voice of Jesus say’, LH 306, TIS 585, AT 137). If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

Out of the depths, I cry to you,
Lord, hear my tearful prayer!
If you should mark iniquity,
O Lord God, who could stand?
But you forgive the sorry soul,
so all may fear your name.
I wait for you, for you I long,
and in your word I hope.

I wait for him far more than those
who wait for dawn to come.
O Isra-el, hope in the Lord!
With him is steadfast love.
He has great power to redeem,
and he alone can save
his people from their deadly sin
and raise them from the grave.

PSALM 30

The following paraphrase of Psalm 30 by David Schütz may be sung to the tune Bethany (‘Nearer my God to thee’, LHS 872). If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

I will exalt you, Lord;
you rescued me
from the deep grave of death
that threatened me.
You did not let my foes
gloat over me in death;
I called to you for help,
you spared my life.

Sing to the Lord, you saints,
and praise his name.
Weeping may last the night,
joy comes with dawn.
His anger is so short,
his favour is so long!
So I rejoice in him,
singing my song.

Feeling secure, I said:
‘I shan’t be moved!’
But when you hid your face,
I was dismayed!
To you, O Lord, I called;
‘Have mercy!’ was my cry.
‘What gain is there for you,
if I should die?’

‘How can I praise you, Lord,
if I am dust?
How, from the grave, can I
speak of your trust?
Hear and be merciful!
O Lord, come to my aid!’
I called to God for help,
and I was saved.

You turned my mournful tears,
into a dance.
You stripped me of my grief,
robed me with joy!
I will not hold my tongue!
Now I, with all my heart,
sing songs of thanks to you,
O Lord, my God.
