O Lord, Do Not Delay

To the choirmaster. Of David, for the memorial offering.

701gMake haste, O God, to deliver me!

  O Lord, make haste to help me!

For 1-5, see Ps. 40:13-17

2Let them be put to shame and confusion

  who seek my life!

Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor

  who delight in my hurt!

3Let them turn back because of their shame

  who say, “Aha, Aha!”

4May all who seek you

  rejoice and be glad in you!

May those who love your salvation

  say evermore, “God is great!”

5But I am poor and needy;

  hhasten to me, O God!

You are my help and my deliverer;

  O Lord, do not delay!

Ps. 141:1
