    Verse 1
    O Lord my God, on Thee I'll call
    I am in pains, O hear my cry;
    When floods of water cover me
    Forbid that my heart should backslide.

    Verse 2
    Thou Lord art friend of the infirm
    To whom shall I make my complaint?
    If not to Thee, and only Thee,
    Who calls the miserable to Him.

    Verse 3
    Who has e'er wept to Thee in vain?
    Has Thou e'er shunned anyone's cry?
    Art Thou not the One who promised
    No one shall e'er seek Thee in vain?

    Verse 4
    This could have been my heart's sorrow
    That Thou Lord does not answer pray'r,
    But Thou has been answering my pray'rs
    O Lord, Thou has been my helper.

    Verse 5
    I know I am needy and poor
    But Thou God will not forget me
    He, for whom Jesus is pleading
    Is set free from all his troubles.
