1 Hear us, O Lord, in time of need,
And let Thy name our cause defend;
Grant that our efforts may succeed,
And victory on our steps attend.
2 On horse and chariot some rely,
And some in numbers make their boast;
Our trust is in the Lord most high;
His favor is itself a host.
3 In His salvation we rejoice,
And lift our banners in His name;
Lord, hear our supplicating voice,
And put our haughty foes to shame.
4 Spread over us Thy sheltering wing,
And bless with peace our favored land;
That we may still Thy glory sing,
By whose protecting care we standSource: The Book of Worship #408
