Lyrics

I waited patiently for the Lord;
He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up out of the empty pit,
Out of the miry bog,
Set my feet on the rock,
Making my steps secure.

He put a song of praise into my mouth,
Put a song of praise that's to our God.
He put a song of praise into my mouth,
You give an open ear,
Many will see and fear,
And put their trust in God.

Then I said, ”˜Here I am;
”˜In the scroll it is written of me.
”˜Here I am;” I delight to do your will, God;
”˜Here I am;” Your law is written on my heart.
Sacrifice you do not desire,
Burnt-offering you have not required.
Here I am.

How glad are those who make the Lord their trust,
Who don't go astray after false gods.
How glad are those Who don't turn to the proud,
Your deeds have muliplied
Proclaim them, who could try?
They can't be counted.

I've proclaimed happy news, deliverance;
You know I have not restrained my lips,
And I've revealed your rescue in my heart,
Told of your faithfulness,
Steadfast love I confess
From the congregation.

Then I said, ”˜Here I am;
”˜In the scroll it is written of me.
”˜Here I am;” I delight to do your will, God;
”˜Here I am;” Your law is written on my heart.
Sacrifice you do not desire,
Burnt-offering you have not required.
Here I am.

Do not, O Lord, withhold mercy from me;
Let your love forever keep me safe.
For countless evils have encompassed me
My sin caught up with me
Until I cannot see;
And my heart fails me.

Then I said, ”˜Here I am;
”˜In the scroll it is written of me.
”˜Here I am;” I delight to do your will, God;
”˜Here I am;” Your law is written on my heart.
Sacrifice you do not desire,
Burnt-offering you have not required.
Here I am.
