Edition notes:
Error.gif Possible error(s) identified. Error summary: there is an error in bar 14 - the chord on "me" surely is not two Cs and two Ds in the original! I believe it is a C major chord - Cs in T and B; an E in the alto part; and a C in the soprano part would fit well…

O Lord, my God, to thee do I lift up my soul.
O Lord, in thee, in thee have I trusted.
Let me not be ashamed,
Let not my foes triumph over me.
O lead me in a plain path;
cast me not off, neither forsake me.
Teach me thy way, Lord, Lead me, lead me in a plain path.
O hide not thy face, Hide not thy face far from me.
Lord God, Lord God, Hide not thy face far from me.
