Biblical Songs

These are my 3 favorites of the 10 Biblical Songs.

3. Hear my prayer
(Psalm 55:1-8)

Hear my pray'r, O Lord, my God!
Oh, hide not Thy face from my petition.
Bow Thine ear to me and hearken
unto the voice of my mourning,
to the voice of my mourning.
Pained sore is my heart within
and trembling hath fallen upon me,
the fear of death overwhelms me.
Hear my sighing.
Oh, had I but eagle's pinions,
had I wings like the silver dove!
Far away would I wander,
I would hide me in the wilderness.
On wings I would hasten
to hide from the storm,
the storm and fearful tempest.

4. God is my shepherd
(Psalm 23:1-4)

God is my shepherd,
I want for nothing.
My rest is in the pleasant meadows.
He leadeth me where quiet waters flow.
My fainting soul doth He restore
and guideth me in the ways of peace,
to glorify His name.
And though in death's dark valley
my steps must wander,
my spirit shall not fear
for Thou are by me still.
Thy rod and staff are with me,
and they shall comfort me.

5. I will sing new songs
(Psalm 145:1-7 & 144:9)

I will sing new songs of gladness,
I will sing Jehovah's praises
upon a ten-string psaltery.
Ev'ry day will I extol Thee
and will bless Thy Holy Name,
I will bless Thy Holy Name.
Great is God and great His mercy.
Who shall tell of all His greatness?
Who shall His pow'r declare?
My song shall be of praise and honor,
and of Thy glorious acts.
Thy works are wonderful,
past our knowing.
Yeah, men shall tell of Thy great kindness
and of Thy wond'rous might,
and my voice shall proclaim aloud Thy glory.
