1 Jehovah hear thee in the day
when trouble he doth send;
and let the name of Jacob’s God
thee from all ill defend.
2 O let him help send from above,
out of his sanctuary;
from Zion, his own holy hill,
let him give strength to thee.
3 Let him remember all thy gifts,
accept thy sacrifice:
4 grant thee thine heart’s wish, and fulfil
thy thoughts and counsel wise.
5 In thy salvation we will joy;
in our God’s name we will
display our banners: and the Lord
thy prayers all fulfil.
6 Now know I God his king doth save:
he from his holy heaven
Will hear him, with the saving strength
by his own right hand given.
7 In chariots some put confidence,
on horses some rely;
but we the Lord's name mention will,
who is our God most high.
8 We rise and upright stand, when they
are bowed down and fall.
9 Deliver, Lord; O let the King
us hear, when we do call.
