I. Original text and translations may be found at Psalm 42. v. 1

II. Original text and translations may be found at God, that madest earth and heaven.

III. God, to whom we look up blindly,
Look Thou down upon us kindly:
We have sinned, but not designedly.

If our faith in Thee was shaken,
Pardon Thou our hearts mistaken,
Our obedience reawaken.

We are sinful, Thou art holy,
Thou art mighty, we are lowly.
Let us reach Thee, climbing slowly.

Our ingratitude confessing,
On Thy mercy still transgressing,
Thou dost punish us with blessing.
