1650 Scottish Psalter
Later form of a melody in Chetham's A Book of Psalmody, 1718
1 Lord, haste me to deliver; with speed, Lord, succor me. 2 Let them that for my soul do seek shamed and confounded be: Turned back be they, and shamed, that in my hurt delight. 3 Turned back be they, Ha, ha! that say, their shaming to requite. 4 In thee let all be glad, and joy that seek for thee: Let them who thy salvation love say still, God praisèd be. 5 I poor and needy am; come, Lord, and make no stay: My help thou and deliv'rer art; O Lord, make no delay.
