Peter Tranchell Psalm 142 double chant in E flat minor

[142]. PSALM CXLII. Voce mea ad Dominum.

1. I cried unto the Lord with my voice :
yea, even unto the Lord did I make my supplication.
2. I poured out my complaints before him :
and shewed him of my trouble.
3. When my spirit was in heaviness thou knewest my path :
in the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
4. I looked also upon my right hand :
and saw there was no man that would know me.
5. I had no place to flee unto :
and no man cared for my soul.
6. I cried unto thee, O Lord, and said :
Thou art my hope, and my portion in the land of the living.
7. Consider my complaint :
for I am brought very low.
8. O deliver me from my persecutors :
for they are too strong for me.
9. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks unto thy Name :
which thing if thou wilt grant me, then shall the righteous resort unto my company.
