Representative Text

1 Adored for ever be the Lord;
His praise I will resound,
From Whom the cries of my distress
A gracious answer found.

2 He is my Strength and Shield; my heart
Has trusted in His Name;
And now relieved, my heart, with joy,
His praises shall proclaim.

3 The Lord, the everlasting God,
Is my defence and rock,
The saving health, the saving strength,
Of His anointed flock.

4 O save and bless Thy people, Lord,
Thy heritage preserve;
Feed, strengthen, and support their hearts,
That they may never swerve.

1 Adored for ever be the Lord;

Has trusted in His Name;
And now relieved, my heart, with joy,
His praises shall proclaim.

3 The Lord, the everlasting God,

The saving health, the saving strength,
Of His anointed flock.

4 O save and bless Thy people, Lord,
Thy heritage preserve;
Feed, strengthen, and support their hearts,
That they may never swerve.
