BibleGateway: Psalm 6:1-10
1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David. O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. 2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed. 3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long? 4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks? 6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears. 7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. 9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. 10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.(KJV)
Hymn: TLH 321:
O Faithful God, Thanks Be to Thee
1. O faithful God, thanks be to Thee
Who dost forgive iniquity.
Thou grantest help in sin’s distress,
And soul and body dost Thou bless.
2. Thy servant now declares to me:
“Thy sins are all forgiven thee.
Depart in peace, but sin no more
And e’er My pardoning grace adore.”
3. O Lord, we bless Thy gracious heart,
For Thou Thyself dost heal our smart
Through Christ, our Savior’s precious blood,
Which for the sake of sinners flowed.
4. Give us Thy Spirit, peace afford
Now and forever, gracious Lord.
Preserve to us till life is spent
Thy holy Word and Sacrament.
