Lyrics

Verse 1
I waited for the Lord my God,
And patiently did bear;
At length to me he did incline
My voice and cry to hear.

Verse 2
He took from me a fearful pit,
And from the miry clay;
And on a rock he set my feet,
Establishing my way.

Verse 3
He put a new song in my mouth,
Our God to magnify;
Many shall see it and shall fear,
And on the Lord rely.
