Lord Hear My Prayer – From Matt Searles’ Tumbling Sky

Leave a comment

Matt Searles’ third album of Psalms set with new tunes, Tumbling Sky, is due for release over the coming weeks.
I’ve featured his previous albums here, and this release seeks to answer the question ‘What can miserable Christians sing?’
I’ve been listening to the album early, as a kickstarter backer.
Here’s the first, prerelease track, Lord Hear My Prayer which is based on Psalm 143.

The lyrics:
Lord hear my prayer
In your righteousness
Listen to my cry for mercy
Bring me relief
And end to my grief
Saviour come quickly to me
Do not bring me
To your judgment seat
For no-one is righteous before you
All my hope is in you

The enemy comes
I’m crushed to the ground
And I’m forced to dwell in the darkness
My spirit grows faint
My heart is dismayed
Do not hide your face from me Lord
Yet this I recall
Your deeds from of old
The works of salvation you’ve done
How I thirst for you, Lord

Now teach me to walk
Before you my God
Send forth your Spirit to lead me
Give life to my soul
For your great name’s sake
Do not let evil hold sway
In your steadfast love
Destroy all my foes
Deliver me Lord in your righteousness
I will live for you Lord
