 * Psalm 22: My God, My God  - T. Manion

All: (Sung to the tune of ELH 452)

Hope waits for the accepted hour Till God give joy for mourning;

When He displays His healing pow'r,

Thy sighs to songs are turning.  Thy needs are known unto thy Lord, 

And He is faithful to His Word, This is our hope's foundation.

 

Though it may seem He hears thee not, Count not thyself forsaken;

Thy wants are ne'er by Him forgot, 

Let this thy hope awaken; His word is sure, here is thy stay, 

Though doubts may plague thee on thy way, Let not thy faith be shaken.

Solo: My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?

All: My God…

 Solo: All who see me laugh at me. They shake their heads,

“He trusted in God, let God deliver Him, if God loves him.”

All: My God…

Solo: Closely, now they press me ‘round and pierce me through,

“He trusted in God, let God deliver Him, if God loves him.”

All: My God…

Solo: All is taken, all is lost. Be near, my help. Come near, my help.

I trusted in God, may God deliver me. O deliver me, as you love me.

I long to stand in the midst of your people, and sing your name.

Give God your laud, cry out your praises, and hold fast to the Lord.

All: My God…

All: As Christ hath full atonement made 
 And brought to us salvation,


So may each Christian now be glad
  And build on this foundation;


Thy grace alone, dear Lord, I plead,


Thy death is now my life indeed,
  For Thou hast paid my ransom.
