74. Desire After God

1 O Lord, give ear when with my voice
I cry aloud to Thee;
Have mercy also, I entreat,
Give answer unto me.

2 When Thou didst say, Seek ye My face,
My answering heart replied,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek
Above all else beside.

3 Hide not Thy face, nor in Thy wrath
Thy servant put away;
Thou hast a helper been to me
In ev'ry troublous day.

4 O God, my Saviour, leave me not;
Tho' parents should forsake,
The Lord, within His arms of love,
His child will surely take.
