Verse 1
Hear me, Lord, out of the depths I call
Comfort and guard my heart, shelter me in this storm
Turn to me, see my distress and need
Weary and poor I come, calling upon your name

You are forgiving and good
Abounding in love to the faithful who call
No other god can compare to you
Great is your mercy and grace
With all of my heart I will sing of your name
No other power can save, but you

Verse 2
Teach me, God, show me the righteous path
Lead me to walk with you, trusting you all my days
Hear my cry, with terror on every side
Justice will soon prevail; you are the God who saves
