O Lord my God, be not Thou far from me;
my God, have regard to help me,
for there have risen up against me sundry thoughts
and great fears, afflicting my soul.
How shall I pass through unhurt?
how shall I break them to pieces?
This is my hope, my only one consolation,
to flee unto Thee,
to call upon Thee from my inmost heart,
and to wait patiently for Thy consolation.
How did he know I needed this?
O yes, He knew!
