1 In the day of need may your answer be the LORD;
may the God of Jacob strengthen you.
May he send you help from his high and holy place,
and support you for the glory of his name.
2 May the LORD God grant you success in all your plans;
may he give you all your heart's desire.
May we sing for joy when we see the battle won,
when the LORD has heard and answered every prayer.
3 Now I know that God will encourage those he loves;
he will hear and answer from on high.
Not a word shall fail of the promise he has made,
nor the works of his victorious right hand.
4 There are some who boast of the weapons of the world,
but the power of God is all our pride.
Those who arm for war shall one day collapse and fall,
but God's people stand and in their King prevail.
