9b. Exaudiat te Dom.

1 In trouble and adversity
the Lord God heare thee still:
The Majesty of Jacobs God
defend thee from all ill.
2 And send thee from his holy place
his help at every need:
And so in Sion stablish thee,
and make thee strong indeed.

3 Remembring well the sacrifice
that now in him is done:
And so receive right thankfully
thy burnt offrings each one.
4 According to thy heart's desire,
the Lord grant unto thee:
And all thy counsell and device,
full well performe may he.

5 We will rejoyce when thou us sav'st;
and our banners display
Unto the Lord, which thy requests,
fulfilled hath alway.
6 The Lord will his annointed save,
I know well by his grace:
And send him help by his right hand,
out of his holy place.

7 In chariots some put confidence,
and some in horses trust:
But we remember God our Lord,
that keepeth promise just.
8 They fall down flat but we do rise,
and stand up stedfastly:
Now save and help us Lord and King
on thee when we do cry.
