515. If we have forgotten the Name of our God

1 If we have forgotten the Name of our God,
Or unto an idol our hands spread abroad,
Shall not the Almighty uncover this sin?
He knows all our hearts and the secrets within.

Refrain:
Rise, help and redeem us,
Thy mercy we trust;
Rise, help and redeem us,
Thy mercy we trust.

2 We all the day long for thy sake are consumed,
Defeated and helpless, to death we are doomed;
They why dost thou tarry? Jehovah, awake,
Nor spurn us for ever; arise for our sake. [Refrain]

3 O why art Thou hiding the light of thy face,
Forgetting our burden of grief and disgrace?
Our soul is bowed down, yea, we cleave to the dust;
Rise, help and redeem us, thy mercy we trust. [Refrain]
