1 O Lord my God who saves me,
to you my spirit cries;
my life is full of trouble,
I am as one who dies.

2 Your anger lies upon me,
I cannot make amends;
your waves, they overwhelm me;
you take away my friends.

3 And shall the dead sing praises,
and can the darkness see
the wonders of your mercy,
your faithfulness to me?

4 I call you in the morning,
and seek you all day long.
O hear me, Lord and Saviour;
return to me my song.

5 My God shall yet restore me;
his Spirit came to save,
and Jesus, my Redeemer,
shall lift me from the grave!
