A Psalm of David

Jehovah hear thee in the day Of thy calamity

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jehovah hear thee in the day
of thy calamity;
The name of Jacob's mighty God
defend and set thee high:
2 Help send thee from his holy place,
and strength from Zion give.
3 Remember all thy offerings,
and sacrifice receive. (Selah)

4 Grant thee according to thy heart;
thy counsel all fulfill:
5 In thy salvation grated, we
rejoice with shouting will.
And in the name of our own God
our banners we will rear:
Most kindly hear thee may the LORD
and answer all thy prayer.

6 Now know I that Jehovah will
save his Messiah dear,
With his right hand of strength; and from
his holy heaven he'll hear.
7 In chariots some their confidence,
and some in horses set;
But of the LORD our God the name
we never will forget.

8 So we shall rise and stand upright,
while they bow down and fall.
Save Lord, and hear us let the king,
when we to him do call.
