HEAR MY PRAYER

Home > Composers > Stephanie Martin > HEAR MY PRAYER

Many composers have set Psalm 102 to music. Few versions are as effective as this one. Intuitive voice leading, varied dynamics and appropriately crunchy dissonances will make this a good experience for the choir and meaningful to the listener.

LYRICS

Hear my prayer, O Lord,
And let my crying come unto Thee 

Hide not Thy face from me
In the day when I am in trouble

For my days are consumed like smoke
And my bones are burned as a hearth
My heart is smitten and withered like grass
For I have eaten ashes bread
And mingled my drink with weeping

For Thou hast lifted me up
And Thou hast cast me down.
My days are like a shadow that declineth
And I am withered like grass

But Thou O Lord shall endure 
for ever and ever
