Original text and translations
My song shall alway be Thy mercy, singing Thy praise, Thou only God,
my tongue ever speaks the goodness Thou hast done unto me.
I wander in night and foulest darkness,
and mine enemies stand threatening around;
yet called I upon the name of the Lord,
and He redeemed me with watchful goodness.
