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

Prevent us,* O LORD, with Thy mercy, before the jealousy of Thine anger be kindled, that helped by the prayers of the Blessed, whose blood was shed for Thy sake, we may obtain Thy mercy and remission of our sins. Through. (1.)

Be merciful to our sins,* O LORD, and, for the glory of Thy Name, refresh us with perfect freedom. Let us not become a rebuke unto the heathen whilst we are oppressed with the record of our sins. Wash away, then, the source of our offences, that Thou punish us not with severe chastisement, and let the sighing of the prisoners enter in unto Thee, that Thy bountiful grace may come manifestly unto us from Thy hid treasures. Through. (11.)

O LORD,* let Thy mercy speedily prevent us, for there is neither comforting hope, nor trust in merit, nor helpful assistance to support us; but the guilt and trouble of our life, the conscience of our sins, or the vengeance on our offences rebukes us in our unrest. Deliver us for the glory of Thy Name, and be merciful unto our sins for Thy Name’s sake, that when Thou hast done both for Thyself, and hast looked on Thy people with Thy wonted loving-kindness, we may give Thee glory for our deliverance, and obtain propitiation through Thy Name. Through. (11.)

O LORD Most High,* be Thou our Helper; and make haste’ with speed to deliver Thy people, that by Thine abundant power we may be filled with mighty help, and be enriched with gifts from the bounty of Thine abundant grace, that our tongue may not become slow through falsehood when we profess love to Thee with our mouth, but let that profession of our mouth denote purity of mind, and let Thy praise ever sound on our lips from the organ of the heart. Through. (11)

Remember not,* O LORD, our old sins, nor let original guilt bring sorrow on us, whom a second birth in CHRIST regenerates. Let Thy mercy, therefore, O LORD, take hold upon us; for the Creator of man is born in man, and man is assumed into GOD, Who is to be glorified. Through. (11.)

We beseech Thee, O LORD, mercifully to hear our prayers, (D. C.) and for Thy praiseworthy and glorious Name’s sake, remember not our old sins, that, by Thy help, delivered from all our offences, we may ever watch unto the works of righteousness. Through. (1.)
