Richardson was organist at Winchester Cathedral, 1693-1729. This piece is typical of his simple style.
Lyrics: Psalm 55, v.1,2,4,6

Hear my prayer, O God: and hide not thyself from my petition.
Take heed unto me, and hear me: how I mourn in my prayer, and am vexed.
My heart is disquieted within me: and the fear of death is fallen upon me.
Then I said, O that I had wings like a dove: then would I flee away, and be at rest.
