Jehovah Hear Thee in Thy Grief

Representative Text

1 Jehovah hear thee in thy grief,
our fathers' God defend thee still,
send from His holy place relief,
and strengthen thee from Zion's hill.

2 Thy sacrifice may He regard,
and all thine off'rings bear in mind;
thy heart's desire to thee accord,
fulfilling all thou hast designed.

3 In thy salvation we rejoice,
and in God's name our banners raise;
Jehovah hearken to thy voice,
fulfill thy prayers through all thy days.

4 Salvation will the LORD command,
and His anointed will defend;
yea, with the strength of His right hand
from heav'n He will an answer send.

5 How vain their every confidence
who on mere human help rely;
but we remember for defense
the name of God, the LORD Most High.

6 Now we arise and upright stand,
while they, subdued and helpless fall;
Jehovah, save us by Thy hand,
the King give answer when we call.
