Psalm 6:1-4

O Lord, in thy wrath rebuke me not:
neither chasten me in thy displeasure.
Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak:
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
My soul is also sore troubled:
but, Lord, how long wilt thou punish me?
O save me, for thy mercy's sake.

"Wohl dem, der sich auf seinen Gott," Johann Christoph Rube 1692 (verses 1,3,5 - mov'ts. 1,4,6; source for the other movements)
