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

Comfort Thy people, (Lu.) O LORD, and deliver us from the evil captivity of sin, that what we sow here in tears, we may reap in joy through Thy bounty. (1.)

Turn our captivity,* O LORD, redeeming us from the luring seductions of the enemy, and fill us, whom Thou seest to be sorrowful for the guilt we have committed, with the comfort of pardon; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may seek the lowliness of a contrite heart and wash away with floods of tears the stains which defile us, and in such wise sow in tears the remedies of confession that we may reap with joy the fruits of pardon. (11.)

Fill our mouth with joy,* O LORD, and enrich our tongue with rejoicing, that we who sow in tears the Word of Life, may reap in joy the fruit of righteousness. (11.)

Crying unto Thee in trouble,* let us lift up our mind’s eye unto Thee, O LORD, our Helper, that Thou mayest deliver us from the cruel teeth of the wicked, take away from us the rod of unrighteous tyranny, and bestowing on us Thy wonted compassion, let us, while being loosed from the captivity of sin, be counted as living stones in the building of the heavenly Jerusalem. (1.)

Purge us, (D. C.) O LORD, from sins; build up for Thyself within us a house to dwell in, that Thou abiding in us, and we in Thee, we may become heirs of the heavenly kingdom, together with Thy beloved, when Thou givest us the sleep of death. (1.)
