A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

Hearken, O LORD,* graciously to the prayers of Thy humble servants, that we who, bound in our sins, have withered like grass, may be lifted up by the glance of Thy heavenly mercy. (1.)

Arise, O GOD,* and have mercy upon Sion, for the time of having mercy on us is come, look upon our lowly petition, and accept the prayer of Thy humble servants. (11.)

Hear our prayer,* O LORD, and let our cry come unto Thee without any obstacle; in what day soever we call upon Thee, let our prayer be swiftly laid open before Thee, and turn not Thy face from our sight, nor withdraw Thy guidance from our conduct, that we, whose desires will then attain unto Thee, may rejoice in obtaining our request. (11.)

O LORD,* hear my prayer, and let my cry come unto Thee, in the gentle ear of Thy loving-kindness; call us not back in the midst of our days, but grant that as we aim at a certain goal, we may finish our race of holiness, and through desire for sanctification may obtain, in the few days of this present life, the kingdom of eternal glory. (11.)

Thine enemies reviled Thee unjustly all the day long,* when they not only failed to know Thee the LORD of the world,* but the men of peace swore against Thee. Grant us, therefore, that as we truly believe in Thy Passion, we may also live without end together with Thee in the everlasting Resurrection. (11.)

Hear our prayer, (D. C.) O LORD, as we cry unto Thee, and from the height of Thy sanctuary behold the earth, and graciously put away from us evils present and to come, that we may declare Thy glory in Sion, and Thy praise in the heavenly Jerusalem. (1.)
