 1  Before me I constantly see my disgrace;
    And shame and confusion have covered my face;
    At sound of the taunters and scoffers delight;
    their hearts full of hate and revengeful despite.

 2  Though all these sore evils have been our sad lot;
    Our God and His cov'nant we have not forgot;
    Our heart turned not back and our feet have not strayed;
    Tho' broken mid jackals with death for our shade.

 3  If we have forgotten the Name of our God;
    Or unto some idol our hands spread abroad;
    Shall not the Almighty Who sees all within;
    And knows the heart's secrets, discover this sin?

 4  Yea, all the day long for Thy sake we're consumed;
    Like sheep for the slaughter to death we are doomed;
    Awake, O Eternal, and sleep Thou no more;
    Arise and our help cast not off ever more.
