Title: Lord hear my prayer
Composer: William Byrd
Original text and translations
Lord heare my prayer instantly,
which I before thee make,
and let my crye come unto thee,
do not the same forsake.
Turne not away thy face from me
when troubles me opresse,
each day inclyne thine eare to me
and succour my distresse.
Anonymous metrical translation of Psalm 102: 1-2
